No Tuition hike at Chattanooga State/Cleveland State

TENNESSEE (WDEF) – In a year of rampant inflation, it is not hitting Tennessee’s tech and two year colleges.

The Tennessee Board of Regents voted on Friday to hold the line on tuition next year at Chattanooga State, Cleveland State and local TCAT schools.

The also suspended online course fees for the second year in a row.

Board staff says that they are still getting pandemic relief funds plus a big boost from lawmakers this year.

“We’re grateful to Governor Lee and members of the Tennessee General Assembly for supporting Tennessee students and their families with a historic increase in state funding for higher education. The Board’s approval today to keep tuition and fees unchanged for another year is a direct result of that, the continued federal assistance, and the hard work by our colleges to hold costs down,” said Chancellor Flora W. Tydings.
