Regents Reconsider Tuition Increases

South Dakota's Board of Regents reconsidered their tuition increase model.  The Rapid City Journal reports that neighboring states raise tuition an average of 3.2% over ten years, but the SD Board of Regents approved a 5% increase.  This means that in 2030 undergraduate tuition and fees would cost $16,022.60 in South Dakota compared to $11,439.15 in neighboring states.  The regents have agreed to lower tuition hikes to stay more competitive with other states.
