Tuition Rates Go Up

The Tennessee Board of Regents has voted to increase tuition and fee rates for the six universities, 13 community colleges and 27 technology centers it governs. The rates of increase are lower this year than in previous years. TBR does not oversee the University of Tennessee, but they do oversee all other community colleges such as Motlow State Community College. The new mandatory and maintenance fee/tuition rates will result in price increases ranging from 3.4 percent at Austin Peay State University to 7.2 percent at East Tennessee State University. MTSU will go up by 6.8%. Students at the University of Memphis will see a 7 percent increase in price and at Motlow Community College students will pay 4.3 percent more. Tennessee Technology Center students across the state will see a 6.2 percent price increase per trimester.
