Universities Consider Foregoing Tuition Hikes for Extra State Money

The University of Florida and other state universities might forgo undergraduate tuition increases next year in exchange for increased state funding. The Florida Board of Governors discussed Thursday a request for $118 million in new state funding that would be distributed to universities based on their performance. The figure is around the same amount universities would have received by making 15 percent tuition increases, the maximum allowed by law. … The discussion came during the board’s second and final day of meetings at New College of Florida.
