(Neb.)-Heineman Plans To Increase Aid To State Universities, Colleges

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 01/07/2013 11:35 AM
     LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) - Gov. Dave Heineman says he will request an increase in state aid that would allow for a two-year tuition freeze at the University of Nebraska and the State College System.
     The governor announced an agreement Monday that would allow the university and the colleges to hold tuition flat during the next two academic years.
     The governor's budget request includes a $43 million increase in state aid for the University of Nebraska in fiscal year 2015, which would bring total state aid up to $541 million. The Nebraska State College System would see a $4.1 million increase, which would raise total state aid to $49.6 million.
     University of Nebraska President J.B. Milliken says the average student will save about $1,000 during over two years.
