University Of Delaware Students To See 7 Percent Tuition Hike

NEWARK, Del. (AP) — Students at the University of Delaware can expect to see a 7 percent increase in tuition this fall.

Officials say tuition for in-state undergraduate students will be $9,670 per year, an increase of $630. Out-of-state students, meanwhile, will pay an annual rate of $25,940, an increase of $1,700.

University officials point to several factors for the increase. The university says about 43 percent of the increase will go toward the rising demand for financial aid among students. It also cites higher costs for staff, facilities maintenance and construction.

    As a contracted employee for the University, I am quite sure that “overpaid teachers” are not responsible for the tuition hikes. Quite frankly, as a whole the professors are no where near overpaid. The University is spending quite a bit of money on expansion and capital inprovements in their path to excellence. Hope it pays off and justifies the increase. As a tuition paying parent as well, the increase seems a bit extreme.

    Thanks to the over payed teachers that the university hired. The original agreement of the states supporting the university through tax dollars was to keep the tuition at a affordable rate but it has not happened then or now. I hope the lose enough students to cause them to rethink their financial situation and start having interactive studies instead of the close minded education that these professors tend to teach. They’ll soon find out that they can’t spend,spend ,spend as our government advocates without going broke.
