After a year of paying the highest tuition in the UW’s history, students may finally see some financial relief.
In late March, both the Washington House Democrats and the Senate Republicans released their draft budgets for the next two years; neither suggested a tuition increase.
“All the signals are at least on the right side of the leger, everybody wants to be commended for a good higher ed budget, and that’s a great thing for them to fight for,” said Genesee Adkins, UW Director of State Relations. “We can help them get there.”
The Senate proposed a 25-percent tuition reduction that would lower tuition to about $9,300. The House’s budget, on the other hand, advocated for a tuition freeze.
