The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is scheduled to act on tuition rates for the 2019-20 academic year and receive reports on a number of topics during its regular meeting Tuesday through Friday, Sept. 11-14.
The meeting will be held in the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center. Board meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions.
The board is being asked to consider a 4 percent increase in most tuition rates, in line with its current four-year tuition policy. That includes tuition for both Wyoming resident and nonresident undergraduates, along with many graduate students and programs. Three exceptions to the 4 percent increase are proposed: a 45 percent reduction in the rate charged to nonresident graduate students enrolled in programs that are solely offered online; a reduction from $537 to $350 per credit hour for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program that is solely offered online; and a 5 percent increase in tuition for UW’s online resident, nonresident and executive Master of Business Administration Program.
A period for written comments on the tuition proposals has ended, but members of the public may address the topic during the time for public testimony at 11 a.m. Thursday during the board meeting. Consideration and action on the tuition proposals is set for 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Among the issues about which the board is scheduled to receive reports are: UW’s work with community colleges on a common college transcript; the Biodiversity Institute; annual fundraising priorities; intercollegiate athletics; and the university’s strategic plan. An update on preliminary fall semester enrollment also is scheduled Thursday morning.
Various committees of the board will begin meeting Tuesday afternoon and throughout the day Wednesday. The full board meeting begins with an executive session at 8 a.m. Thursday, with the public session slated to start at 9:45 a.m.
The complete agenda, along with a report that includes background information on agenda items, is available at www.uwyo.edu/trustees/2018-meeting-materials/september_12-14_2018_meeting.html.
