IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Days after Gov. Terry Branstad called a proposed tuition increase too big, the board governing Iowa’s public universities released a change that would make it even bigger for some students.

A revised Board of Regents plan would hit University of Iowa engineering and business school students with larger tuition hikes and generate $1.2 million more in revenue in the coming school year.

The plan maintains a $300 across-the-board hike for undergraduate students at the schools who are state residents. That’s on top of a $200 increase already approved in December for University of Iowa students.

The new plan would further increase tuition by $200 for second-year students who are in the UI business and engineering schools. For upperclassmen in those colleges, tuition would rise by an extra $350 or more.
