Southern students could face tuition increase | Business
Southern University students could be facing a ten percent tuition increase in the fall. Chancellor Jim Llorens talked about the proposed increase during a speech at the Press Club today, Monday, April 16.
The proposed increase is budgeted for the 2012-2013 school year. An in-state student who currently pays $2,537 per semester would be looking at a $253 increase.
Officials say the money is needed to offset a decrease in state funding and declining student enrollment.
The proposal would have to be approved by the Board of Regents.
