Utah legislators are considering a proposal to raise tuition rates substantially (to cover the full costs of instruction) for students who earn 120 percent of the credits needed to graduate, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. Lawmakers say that these students should be encouraged to leave public colleges and universities or to share more of the costs of higher education.
