College Tuition Could Jump by 8 Percent
Students attending one of Florida’s 11 state universities will collectively spend at least $54 million in additional tuition under a House plan unveiled Wednesday that calls for boosting tuition by at least 8 percent statewide.
The House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday rolled out its $69.2 billion spending plan that would allow university officials to tack on an additional 7 percent in differential tuition.
State college students would pay an additional $73 million under the 8 percent tuition hike.
On Tuesday, Gov. Rick Scott said he opposes any increase in student tuition.
