University Of Tennessee Proposes 2.5% Tuition And Fee Increase For UT Martin
The University of Tennessee system is proposing a 2.5% tuition and fees increase for the Martin campus.
According to a release on Wednesday, that amounts to $236 dollars more per semester for a typical in state student.
The system says the increase would cover the growth in costs providing programs to students.
Other universities in the system with proposed increases include a 2% increase for UT Knoxville and a 2.5% increase for UT Chattanooga.
The system unveiled earlier this year a UT Promise scholarship to start in fall 2020. The program will guarantee free tuition and fees for students from families with household incomes of under $50,000 dollars after other financial aid is received and other qualifications are met.
The Board of Trustees meets on June 21 to vote on the changes.
