ORONO, Maine (WMTW) —

A key committee has approved a resolution to hold in-state tuition flat for University of Maine System students in the coming year.

The Finance, Facilities and Technology Committee of the University of Maine System Board of Trustees made the recommendation Monday.

The system said in a statement that the move would help keep the cost of a UMaine education down for students and families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The $578 million budget could be adopted later this month.

The system said it would be the seventh time in the last ten years it has held the line on tuition rates for Mane students.
