Students, Officials Praise Plan To Freeze Tuition

December 15, 2013, 11:28 AM

PIERRE, SD -

Students and officials say a plan to freeze tuition and fees for South Dakota residents attending state-run universities is good news for students struggling financially.

Student Federation President DJ Smith says the proposal indicates students' voices are being heard.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard included the tuition freeze in his state budget proposal for the year that begins next July.

The plan would freeze tuition and fees for all in-state undergraduate and graduate students who attend classes on the state's six university campuses. A similar plan would hold down tuition at the state's four technical institutes.

A study by the regents found that resident undergraduate tuition at South Dakota's universities has risen by 29 percent since the 2007-2008 school year. It was $7,676 last year, third highest among nearby states.
