Some Colleges Limit Tuition Hikes, but Not Fees

July 28, 2011

Some public colleges, facing state budget cuts and pressure to limit tuition increases, are turning to fees, some of them temporary but many of them substantial, USA Today reported. The article noted that, in Georgia's public university system, tuition will be up 3 percent next year, but that with fees included, the hike would be 9 percent. At Indiana University at Bloomington, students this fall will pay a $180 "temporary repair and maintenance fee" -- which will double next year.
