UDel trustees approve rate hikes, reductions at meeting
University of Delaware students will pay more for housing and dining plans this year after a trio of rate hikes were approved by the schoolâ€™s board of trustees on Tuesday.
Dining plans offered by the university will rise by an average of 3.5 percent and rates for housing in residence hall rooms is set to increase by 3 percent in the school's fall semester, which begins in August.
The New Student Orientation fee is also rising from $120 to $145 in the upcoming semester to cover the cost of a math placement exam taken by incoming freshmen.
However, the student health fee will be reduced from $252 per semester to $227 and a comprehensive fee for full-time students will also decrease from $395 to $375.
The rates for those fees remains unchanged for winter and summer session students.
No changes for tuition rates were announced at the trustees' meeting. Tuition adjustments are announced in July, following the passage of the state budget.
