University of Hawaii students have the expensive distinction of attending a school which charges the seventh highest tuition fee of 75 state universities.

According to President Gregg M. Sinclair, local students pay $239 a school year for two semesters in tuition and fees.

The tuition was doubled this fall, after a campus-shaking slash of the UH budget by the territory’s 1951 legislature. The law-makers gave the school nearly $1,000,000 less than it was getting for the 1949-51 biennium.

President Sinclair’s report is based on findings of the legislative research committee of Minnesota.
