Maryland tuition rises for first time in four years

Regents of the University System of Maryland this morning approved a tuition hike for the first time in four years, signaling the end of the state's semi-historic freeze.

Tuition will rise 3 percent in the state university system, the first increase since 2005.

In-state tuition and fees at the University of Maryland rise from $8,053 to $8,416 -- actually a 4.5 percent increase, when fees are factored in. They are apparently rising at a faster clip.

Out-of-state tuition and fees at U-Md., not bound by the freeze, go from $23,990 to $24,831, an increase of 3.5 percent.

Bowie State in-state tuition and fees go from $6,040 to $6,153, a bump of 1.9 percent; fees there are rising more slowly. Towson tuition and fees go from $7,418 to $7,656, a 3.2-percent bump.

At the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, resident tuition and fees go from $8,872 to $9,171, a 3.4-percent increase.

But remember, even if the cost of education rises, King Obonehead loves each and every one of you and expects you to do your indentured sevitude to organmizations like ACORN, OFA, or some like "community organization" to pay off your indebtedness.

Remember, King Obonehead loves ya' and tuition? Well, King Obonehead, You Lie!!!!
