Tuition at the University of Vermont could go up 5.8 percent next year.
That increase is built into a budget plan that’s been presented to university trustees. The proposal assumes no salary increase for UVM employees.
A committee of the trustees has discussed the $297 million budget for next year but hasn’t taken any action, yet.
Overall spending would rise almost percent over this year.
University officials say the budget would include an in crease in financial assistance of nearly $12 million.
The Burlington Free Press says the proposed budget closes a shortfall of more than $5 million. Final action on the budget is due next month.
