The Tennessee Board of Regents Finance Committee  will vote Friday on tuition rates for Tennessee colleges and universities, with APSU in line for as much as a 5.6%  rate hike. Many other colleges will experience even high rate increases. The TBR oversees six state universities, 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology. The TBR will also consider mandatory fees for student activities and athletics.

On top of the higher tuition, TBR will consider instituting a range of mandatory fees at its universities and colleges. These involve fees for student activities and athletics, among other areas.

The tuition hike generate funds to replace those lost in a state budget that eliminated new funding for higher education. Governor Bill Haslam blamed the need for hikes in tuition on lower than expected tax collections.

The proposed tuition hikes would affect the following schools:

Tennessee Board of Regents system

  • Austin Peay State University — 5.6 percent
  • East Tennessee State University — 6.9 percent
  • Middle Tennessee State University — 5.3 percent
  • Tennessee State University — 6 percent
  •  Tennessee Technological University— 6.2 percent
  • Community colleges — average of 5.8 percent
  • Applied technology colleges — average of 8.5 percent

University of Tennessee system

  • UT-Knoxville — 6 percent for students enrolled before 2013; 3 percent for those who enrolled last fall
  • UT-Chattanooga — 6 percent
  • UT-Martin — 6 percent
  • UT Veterinary Medicine — 5 percent
  • UT Health Science Center — no increase
