TN Colleges To See Lowest Tuition Hike In Years
Tennessee college students will see lower tuition increases thanks to improved state funding. The Tennessee Board of Regents Committee on Finance and Business Operations this week recommended increases of 3% for each of the state's 13 community colleges. It also recommended a rise of between 1.5% to 6% for the Regents' six universities.
The full board votes on the proposals June 21st. The recommendations are lower than recent years because of budget allocations recommended by Gov. Bill Haslam and approved by the General Assembly. They provided more general operating dollars for higher education for the first time in more than a decade.
