Commerce, TX – Tuition increases in the A&M System have been approved by the Board of Regents. What the increase will be for next year at A&M-Commerce is still unknown.
The final determination will come after the Legislature approves and the Governor signs the appropriations bill for higher education.
The range of the increase is zero to $19 a credit hour. This would apply to the 2007-08 academic year. A full increase would generate $3.8 million dollars. Of that, 20 percent would go towards student financial assistance and the remainder would be applied to pay, departmental priorities, and maintenance projects.
University officials announced there would not be a tuition increase for the following year.
