Some lawmakers do not want to see a tuition increase at public universities over the next two years, but some opponents say legislating the issue would erode the North Dakota University System’s authority over determining the tuition rates.
In recent years, both the University of Minnesota system and the North Dakota University System decided to keep out-of-state tuition low. The policy creates more vibrant and cosmopolitan campuses by drawing out-of-state students, many of whom wind up staying after graduation.
But there's a difference: The North Dakota system also keeps tuition for North Dakota residents comparatively low.
The University of Minnesota is currently the cheapest school in the Big Ten for nonresident tuition, but possibly not for much longer. Officials plan to review the cost of tuition for out-of-state residents, lowered four years ago to attract more undergraduates.
In 2011, Minnesota's state funding for public colleges and universities fell 14.2 percent -- per full-time student, after adjusting for inflation -- according to the State Higher Education Executive Officers. Meanwhile, net tuition per student rose by 12.8 percent.
The state Board of Higher Education has rejected North Dakota State University's request for a one-half of one percent tuition increase after some board members said they feared retaliation by lawmakers.
