Idaho Education Board approves higher fees

BOISE, Idaho. - The Idaho State Board of Education has set and approved higher education tuition and fees for the 2009-2010 academic year.

Fees for the individual colleges and universities are as follows, with the amount of increase over fiscal year 2009 (which ends June 30, 2009):

2008/2009 Full Time- Idaho Resident- Undergraduate Fees/Tutition

  • University of Idaho: $4,934 for matriculation fees annually or a 6.5 percent increase.
  • Boise State University: $4,864 for tuition and fees annually or a 5 percent increase.
  • Idaho State University: $4,968 for tuition and fees annually or a 6.5 percent increase
  • Lewis Clark State College: $4,596 for tuition and fees annually or a 7 percent increase.
  • Eastern Idaho Technical College: $1,750 for tuition and fees annually or a 5 percent increase.

Initially, the University of Idaho had asked for an 8.5 percent increase, Boise State University a 5 percent  increase which they were granted. Idaho State University requested a 9.3 percent increase. Lewis Clark State College requested a 9 percent increase, and Eastern Idaho Technical College had requested a 5 percent increase, which they too were granted.

The Board also informed each of the institutions that should the Joint Finance Appropriations Committee (JFAC) change the amount of personnel costs currently appropriated in the college/universities budget for the 2010 fiscal year, those changes would automatically adjust accordingly in each of the institution's budgets.

"We appreciated the opportunity to lay out in fairly specific detail the University of Idaho's true needs and to outline for the regents the plan to address those needs," said Lloyd Mues, vice president for finance and administration. "Even though we did not receive approval for the full proposal, we understand today's decision by the university's regents comes in this time of economic challenge for students and their families."
