The University System Board of Regents has approved another round of tuition hikes at all state colleges and universities. Meeting in Savannah, the Regents cited the higher cost of doing business as the reason they're increasing tuition by 2.5% percent for most schools. Chancellor Hank Huckaby says, some schools are getting higher increases, as much as 7%.
The chancellor of the University System of Georgia has warned of tuition hikes because of shrinking state funding for universities and growing enrollment. The Board of Regents will decide next year's tuition rates at its Tuesday meeting.
