University of Colorado Regents passed a 9% hike in tuition for next year, amounting to a $572 per-student increase. But it’s the fourth Colorado tuition hike in four years, according to The Denver Post.
The state is cutting $623 million from higher education, trying to close a $1.3 billion budget gap.
The question is how far can they push students before setting off riots, as were seen last month at UC Berkeley.
