(Republican leadership is unrepentant about the needless cuts made to the University System in the 2011 budget process. For background, here is an exchange this summer with Rep. William Smith, R-New Castle, who chairs the committee that made those cuts.

DURHAM — Students across the University of New Hampshire System can expect another round of tuition increases next fall.
The system’s financial affairs committee last week approved an increase of about 6 percent for tuition, fees, room and board for in-state students at the University of New Hampshire, Keene State College and Plymouth State University. Granite State College’s tuition is expected to rise about 3.6 percent per credit hour.
The increases must still be reviewed and approved by the full board during its next meeting Jan. 24, but the committee’s recommendation is generally a strong indicator of how the rates will be set.
Tuition, fees, room and board for in-state students next fall is projected to be $26,186, while students at Keene and Plymouth will pay $21,538 and $21,550, respectively. Out-of-state students at UNH will pay $38,646, while those at Keene and Plymouth will be $28,438 and $28,450, respectively.
