IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Officials are proposing a nearly $8,000 cut in annual nonresident tuition so they can attract more students to the University of Iowa College of Law.
The Des Moines Register says the proposal disclosed on Tuesday is aimed at reversing a decline in applicants and class size.
If approved by the Board of Regents in December, the tuition reduction would take effect in fall 2014.
Law schools around the country have cut tuition in recent years as enrollment has declined.
Under the proposal, tuition for nonresidents pursuing a law degree at the school would drop to $39,500 from nearly $47,300.
Resident tuition would increase nearly $500, to nearly $26,750 a year.
