New UVM president wants smaller tuition hike

Posted: Updated:

Tuition is headed up again at the University of Vermont, but not as much as previous years.

UVM's new president, Tom Sullivan, signaled at a trustees meeting Wednesday that he will recommend a tuition hike of less than 3 percent for next year. That would be the smallest increase in 36 years.

Sullivan says his administration is working on finding the right balance between tuition and financial aid to keep UVM affordable and accessible to Vermonters.

Tuition rose 3.5 percent for this current school year and 4 percent the year before.
