UT Knoxville subcommittee considers no tuition increase

Friday, June 8, 2018, Vol. 42, No. 23

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A subcommittee at the University of Tennessee Knoxville will consider a proposal to hold tuition flat for the first time in 34 years.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that's according to materials for the meeting on tuition and fees at the university.

The university's Subcommittee on Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid meets Monday afternoon. The tuition and fee proposals would next go to the Finance and Administration Committee before the board of trustees considers them.

The board first talked about charging the lowest possible tuition last year when UT System Chief Financial Officer David Miller presented the budget to the board last June.

Miller said in-state tuition and fees currently add up to $12,970 annually, with out-of-state tuition and fees totaling $31,390. Some fees may be increasing.
