Regents Approve Second University Tuition Freeze

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) --
   The Iowa Board of Regents has approved plans to freeze tuition rates for undergraduates -- and reduce them for law students.
   The regents voted Wednesday to keep tuition steady for resident undergraduate students at Iowa's three public universities for the second straight year.
   The freeze is contingent on the schools receiving a 4 percent general funding increase from lawmakers next year. Without it, the regents warn they may have to approve a hike later.
   The regents also voted to reduce tuition rates for University of Iowa law school students by about 16 percent. The university had proposed a nearly $8,000 cut for nonresident students to increase the number of applicants. The regents decided to reverse a proposed increase for resident students and cut their rates by the same percentage.
