The University of Delaware is raising its tuition by three percent.

The increase will not get as much criticism this time around since high education is not exempt from the current bout with inflation. Colleges and universities have taken heat for a steady stream of tuition increases, even during a lengthy period of low inflation.

With room and board, total costs per year now total $32,444 in-state and nearly $55,000 for out-of-state students.


A story in UDaily took note of the university’s academic ratings and measurements of affordability that often list the degree as a good value.

UD also took note of the rising level of student aid in recent years.

The university also has a program that offers a path toward tuition-free attendance for Delaware students from low and moderate-income families.

UD has long been the target of criticism from legislators and others who claim the university is geared to out-of-state students who pay higher tuition, a claim denied by the university.
