Cedar Rapids Gazette: Using a model that Iowa’s Board of Regents unveiled last year to help families plan for the rising cost of education, undergraduate students who are residents of Iowa attending Iowa State University and the University of Iowa next fall will see at least another 3% tuition increase — and as much as a 5.3% increase. Board President Mike Richards announced that range Thursday during a regents meeting in Council Bluffs, confirming the board’s continuation of a five-year tuition model it debuted last fall. The hope was to give students and families a line of sight to annual increases several months in advance, while still allowing for flexibility depending on state appropriations that go before the Iowa Legislature.
