Miami tuition hike unlikely

The Associated Press

        OXFORD, Ohio — The president of Miami University said careful management will enable the institution to avoid a midterm tuition increase.

        Several other state-related institutions, including the University of Cincinnati, have increased tuition during the school year because of state funding cuts.

        University President James Garland told Miami trustees Friday that additional cuts this fiscal year are possible and the university is facing almost certain state funding cuts next year.

        He said that a recently announced 6 percent funding cut means a $7.5 million loss that represents about 3 percent of the academic portion of the budget.

        Trustee Fred Wall said most of a budget shortfall of $4.3 million will be made up through departmental expense reductions.
