Price Of Higher Education Could Be Going UP
GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — Students attending University of Texas System schools could be paying more for an education.
The UT System Board of Regents is expected to hold a special meeting later this month to consider increasing tuition and fees. The proposals call for increases of between 2 and 6.4 percent for resident undergraduate students.
System Chancellor William McRaven on Wednesday updated regents, meeting in Galveston, on the need to retain faculty, improve student success and continue to provide essential services.
Most UT System in-state undergraduate students have seen little to no tuition increases since 2012.
McRaven says students from low-income families could still get grants and institutional support. He says many will continue to pay little to nothing to attend a UT school.
No date was immediately set for the February tuition vote.
