Paying for higher education in East Tennessee

Tuitions Rise

Knoxville (WVLT) -- A spokeswoman for the Tennessee Board of Regents says higher education leaders are committed to keeping tuition hikes below 10 percent this fall.

The heads of Tennessee's public colleges and universities told lawmakers in early March that they're trying to keep the hikes in the single digits.

Board of Regents spokeswoman Mary Morgan reiterated that proposal following a quarterly board meeting in Chattanooga.

She says the tuition hike will definitely be under 10 percent, but she doesn't know the exact number just yet.

Tuition levels for next fall are scheduled to be set by the Board of Regents and UT systems in June after the legislature completes work on the state budget.
