When the school's Board of Regents meets later this week, the governing body is expected to discuss a 3- to 5-percent increase . It is expected to be the lowest tuition increase since a 2.4 percent boost for the 2004-05 school year.
Tuition was increased by 8.7 percent for the current school year.
"This is the direct result of the increased investment by the state to higher education, and we're grateful to the governor and the legislature," university spokesman Ken McConnellogue said.
In November, Gov. John Hickenlooper announced his proposed budget included an increase of $100 million for higher education operating costs and financial aid — the second consecutive year of increased funding.
