Florida university tuition set to increase

Florida’s public universities’ tuition, which is among the lowest nation wide, could see an increase soon.

A bill, which cleared the House on Wednesday, grants authority to the 11 schools to increase tuition up to 15 percent a year.

Following House-Senate budget negotiations,  agreement was reached on an 8 percent increase, statewide.

Governor Charlie Crist is supportive of the legislation and would shortly sign the bill.

According to the bill, each university could increase tuition by a further 7 percent.
