University Presiient Robben W.
Fleming said yesterday a tuition
increase next fall is almost a
certainty. The "only question now
is the amount," he added.
Fleming declined to speculate
on the size of the tuition hike.
Informed sources, however, in-
dicate the Regents may raise the
out-of-state level to as much as
$1500 for undergraduates based
on state appropriations of about
$63.6 million.
That increase would mean non-
resident student fees would be
$100 per semester higher than this
year. The Senate Appropriations
Committee had recommended a,
$174 per semester increase based
on the principle that an out-of-
state student should pay 75 per
cent of the University's cost in
educating him.
Fleming indicated that in-state
tuition would also have to be in-
creased. However he said :"it is'
almost certain that the increase
for out-of-state students will be
substantially higher."
Sources indicated the in-state
hike might be $35 per semester.
Fleming said the Regents
"agreed to hold a special meeting"
as soon .as the legislature agrees
on a final level for University ap-
propriations. The bills passed by
the House and Senate differ by
$2.3 million.
The size of the tuition increase
for both in-state and out-of-state
students depends on negotiations

Fleming said if the legislature
insists the University charge out-
of-state students 75 per cent of
the cost, "it is inevitable that out-
of-state tuition will just keep
going up."
He said it would not be prac-
tical to charge out-of-state grad-
uate students 75 per cent of the
educational cost because grad-
uate programs are more expensive
than in the undergraduate divi-
Fleming said it would not be
difficult to raise undergraduate
tuition to the point where out-of-
state students are paying 75 per
cent of the educational cost. For
graduate students, however, he
cited the case of the Medical
School where, he said, the per-
student cost i "astronomical."

of any tuition increases. "The ap-
