The Medical University of South Carolina's board voted Friday to scale back spring tuition increases, in response to an ultimatum by the state board that must approve new building projects that it would block approval at any four-year college or university where tuition increases exceeded 7 percent, The Charleston Post and Courier reported. Average tuition increases for the medical university are 7.1 percent (the increases vary by academic program), so officials said that relatively modest cuts could get the average under 7 percent. Some other public colleges in the state, however, have increases in excess of 10 percent, and it is not yet clear if they will put building projects on hold or will cut spring semester rates.
