Gov. Steve Bullock praises the Montana Board of Regents for implementing a college tuition freeze. The regents voted Friday in Great Falls on a plan to freeze college tuition over the next two years at college campuses for Montana residents. Bullock says it was a priority for him early in the budget process to negotiate the tuition freeze with the university system. But there is one exception. The plan does allow for a small tuition increase of about 2 percent each year at Miles City Community College that was requested locally. The freeze policy doesn't include out of staters. Nonresident tuition will increase up to 3 percent each year at the colleges and universities. They also approved fee increases of up to 3 percent at the universities and as much as 9 percent at the two-year colleges.
