Tennessee higher education officials have approved tuition hikes of close to 9 percent for some of their institutions this fall.
The finance committee of the Tennessee Board of Regents voted Thursday for a 6.9 percent tuition increase for its universities, 5.8 percent for community colleges and 8.5 percent for its technical institutions.
The Regents' full board is scheduled to vote on the increases on Friday.
The TBR oversees six state universities, 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology.
Most students in the University of Tennessee system will see a 6 percent jump after the UT Board of Trustees approved the increase on Thursday.
The increases are mostly a result of state revenue shortfalls that made it tough for the governor and the Legislature to appropriate new funds.Tuition Hikes Coming for Many Tennessee Students
