DARTMOUTH (CBS) – UMass students and their parents may soon have reason to celebrate after the University of Massachusetts Board of Trustees froze 2014-2015 tuition and mandatory fees for in-state undergraduate students Wednesday.

The final tuition and fees are dependent on approval of funding for the UMass system of just less than $519 million as proposed in the House and Senate versions of the state budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
