HARTFORD — University of Connecticut officials plan to raise tuition by more than $3,000 for in-state students and $4,000 for out of state students over the next four years.

The plan was released Tuesday by the school’s chief financial officer at a campus Town Hall meeting.

Under the proposal, tuition would rise in stages from the current $10,524 for in-state students to $13,799 in the 2019-20 school year. Tuition for out-of-state students will go from $32,066 to $36,466.

Scott Jordan, the school’s CFO, says revenue generated in the first year of the tuition hike will contribute about $12.8 million to help close a projected $40 million gap in the school’s $1.3 billion budget.

The proposal will be presented for approval to the school’s Board of Trustees later this month.
