Board to take action on tuition, fees; governor to address TU student leaders
TOWSON, Md. (April 22, 2009)— The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents will hold a special meeting to take action on tuition and mandatory fees for fiscal year 2010. The public meeting is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Thurs., Apr. 23, in the Potomac Lounge of TU's University Union.
At the meeting, USM Chancellor William E. Kirwan will recommend that the tuition rates for resident undergraduate full- and part-time students remain at the current FY 2009 levels as the result of budget actions taken by Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley and the General Assembly.
If the board approves the recommendation, this will mark the fourth consecutive year that the Board of Regents has frozen undergraduate tuition for Maryland residents due to the level of state funding made available to help avoid tuition increases
Gov. Martin O'Malley will address a group of TU student leaders at about 11:30 a.m.
