HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The University of Hawaii Board of Regents Thursday turned away the UH president’s proposal to reduce tuition across the statewide system.

A spokesman said regents had questions about the impact on revenue, especially with a slowing economy.

The president wanted to bring tuition more in line with other institutions, but the regents asked him to come back with a new plan.

This year, rates are scheduled to go up 1 to 2 percent at all 10 UH campuses.
