LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — University of Wyoming officials say the university's net tuition revenue is lower than they had expected despite the institution's strong enrollment.

The Laramie Boomerang reports University of Wyoming Associate Vice President for Budgeting and Fiscal Planning David Jewell told the board of trustees last week that the university is awarding more aid and scholarships through the admissions process to non-resident students who are receiving those awards than it anticipated.

Jewel says he is budgeting for no increase in net tuition revenue during the 2020 fiscal year even though the University of Wyoming's tuition rate is set to rise by 4%.

Jewell says that high-schoolers with a high enough grade-point average and test scores are automatically given certain university-provided aid, regardless of whether that aid is sought by the student.
