Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna said he doesn’t expect tuition at Idaho public universities to rise more than 10 percent. Luna said any double digit tuition increases wouldn’t go far with State Board of Education, which would have to approve any hikes.
In this video interview with IdahoReporter, Luna said the 10 percent cap on tuition increase requests is arbitrary, and that he would be fine with removing the cap permanently.

The Board of Education voted earlier this month to remove the 10 percent limit on tuition hikes university presidents can request.
Idaho’s four universities and colleges have increased tuition an average of 7.5 to 8 percent a year over the past decade. State funding to the four schools dropped by $13 million—just over three percent—in the last state budget.
