Budget Entries from FY 2010

Update on Tuition Increase

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, voted yesterday to increase 2011-2012 tuition by 5 percent. We understand and appreciate the challenges tuition increases create for students and families. We will continue to invest in set-aside money for financial aid to assist our students in financing their education.

While a tuition increase is not something we take lightly, it is necessary to help maintain our focus on maintaining quality programs and progress to graduation, while managing the budget.

What's in store for UNI?

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Over the past three weeks, the parameters of our budget situation have started to be defined. First, the Iowa House of Representatives passed a deappropriation bill, which if passed by the Senate and signed by the governor, will have a profound effect on UNI. The bill would cut $10 million from the Regents institutions for the current fiscal year -- that equates to a $1.66 million cut for UNI. The bill also would cut another $15 million from the public universities for each of the next two fiscal years.

Fall 2010 Budget Update

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Since the beginning of fiscal 2009, on the heels of a national economic crisis, managing the university's General Education Fund operating budget has required all of us to work together to overcome numerous hurdles. These economic challenges are likely to follow us through the current year and well into fiscal 2012.

Update on tuition increase and state appropriations

Friday, February 5th, 2010

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, voted yesterday to increase 2011-2012 tuition at the three state universities by 6 percent. While a tuition increase is not something we take lightly, it is necessary to help maintain our focus on maintaining quality programs, progress to graduation and campus safety. Even with this increase, UNI still faces a challenging budget situation for fiscal 2011 that will become more clear as the Iowa General Assembly takes action on the state's budget.

Budget update from President Allen

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Gov. Culver released his budget recommendations for fiscal 2011 last week. Included in his budget are recommendations for restoring some $31 million to the Regent institutions. This is a welcome sign of support, however, we need to remain cautiously optimistic as the Iowa General Assembly continues its work on the budget.
