Tuition increases could be in store for many college students in Tennessee. According to published reports, some public universities, like MTSU, could see increases of between four-and-eight-percent to offset reduced state funding. Community college students, like those at Motlow State, could see an increase of between two-point-six and 10-point-six percent. Officials at a Tennessee Board of Regents Finance Committee meeting last week reviewed estimated increases at each school. The University of Memphis submitted a plan to avoid an increase. Projected increases at other schools varied. Officials say the numbers are preliminary. Formal tuition proposals will be ready on May 27.
