The increase, which will increase by $ 128 in 2022-2023 and $ 134 in 2023-2024, will be split between increased needs for student health and counseling, recreational facilities and compensation for university traffic, and operational needs for athletics and student programming, and in Newcomb Hall.

The increase in funding is intended to help support the Great and Good Plan 2030 efforts to build more student dormitories on the site.

The increase in tuition fees will be discussed before the finance committee of the board of directors before it is approved by the full board on Friday. College at Wise fees are also expected to increase, with freshmen expected to increase 3.0 percent in both 2022-2023 and 2023-2024.
