University System of Maryland colleges are likely to face "modest" tuition increases next year because of the recession, according to Chancellor William Kirwan. "In this fiscal time, yes, we may see some modest increase in tuition," Kirwan said last week.

Before the freeze, the University System of Maryland raised tuition by as much as 33 percent between 2002 and 2004, because of budget deficits and declining state funding.
