Tuition increase OK'd for 90,000 college students
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana Board of Supervisors has approved a 10 percent tuition hike at all nine of their campuses for the 2013-14 school year.
The average increase for in-state students will be $546, bringing a year's tuition to about $6,103.
The tuition increases approved Tuesday are contingent on each campus passing performance goals listed in the 2010 LA GRAD Act. System officials say preliminary results indicate all nine schools will pass.
The UL System is the largest in Louisiana with 90,000 students at the University of New Orleans, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Southeastern University in Hammond, Grambling State, Northwestern State in Natchitoches, Louisiana Tech in Ruston, Nicholls State in Thibodaux and McNeese State in Lake Charles.
