The University of Minnesota is looking at possibly creating a tuition-free program for certain students in the near future.

The program would be for Minnesota families with an adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less.

The U of M Board of Regents is expected to discuss the idea on Friday as part of the university's system-wide strategic plan, known as MPact 2025. However, the program could begin as soon as next year.

While many of those students would likely be eligible for other financial aid, the program could help cover the remaining costs for those students.
