The freeze continues. The University of Minnesota formally extended a tuition freeze for a second year for undergraduate Minnesota residents Friday.

The Board of Regents approved the freeze as part of a $3.6 billion budget for the 2014-2015 school year.

The U agreed to hold undergraduate tuition steady for two years in 2013 as part of an agreement with Gov. Mark Dayton and the Legislature. In exchange, the state increased its U appropriation by $42 million.

At the Twin Cities campus, undergraduate in-state tuition has remained at $12,060 since 2012.

The tuition is slightly less, $11,720, at campuses in Duluth, Morris and Rochester; and $10,030 at Crookston.
