Regents ready to freeze tuition, renovate Romney Hall on Montana State University campus

The Montana University System is wasting no time in freezing tuition for Montana students and launching major building projects just approved by the 2019 Legislature.

The Board of Regents, meeting for two days in Great Falls, reviewed Wednesday plans to distribute between campuses a $38.6 million increase in state dollars from the Legislature and to set student tuition and fees for the next two years. Formal votes are planned Thursday.

The regents are expected to approve several building projects, the biggest being the $32 million renovation of Romney Hall on the Montana State University campus. The plan is to use $25 million from the Legislature and $7 million raised by MSU to create more classrooms for MSUís growing student population and new centers for math and writing tutoring and veterans.

ďA heartfelt thank you to the Legislature,Ē said MSU President Waded Cruzado, who had sought state funding to modernize Romney Hall in the 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 sessions.
