Regents call for a tuition refund after raising fees
Nov. 17, 1973 — The University’s Board of Regents agreed to a tuition refund. The regents ordered the University’s executive officers to develop a plan to return about $1 million in excess tuition revenue to students who paid fees for the fall 1973 term.
The motion was proposed by Regent Paul Brown. He recommended that the University give rebates, reduce tuition for the winter term or waive fees for term in order to correct an error in the 24 percent fee hike. The increase brought the University a $3.75 million surplus over projected tuition revenue needs.
