ORONO, Maine — University of Maine System trustees have voted to freeze in-state tuition — again.
The board approved a resolution on Monday that'll mean a fourth consecutive year in which tuition will remain at 2013 levels, pending approval of the governor's budget for Maine's universities.
In 2012, university system officials and the state agreed to keep funding the state's seven universities at their current level in exchange for the schools holding tuition levels flat. This would be the fourth year without an in-state tuition hike, making it the longest-running tuition freeze in the history of a public university system founded in 1969.
The University of Maine System Board of Trustees is expected to complete work on its 2016 budget, complete with the tuition freeze, next month.
