No tuition hike for UT students in Knoxville, Chattanooga

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Students at the University of Tennessee’s Knoxville and Chattanooga campuses won’t have a tuition increase next year.

Tennessee’s Board of Trustees on Friday approved a budget for 2018-19 calling for no tuition increase at either of those two schools. Students at Tennessee’s Martin campus will see a 3-percent tuition hike.

This marks the first time since 1984 that any school in the UT system hasn’t had a tuition increase.

Students at Chattanooga will have no increase in tuitions or fees. Knoxville students will pay $36 more in a fee supporting student services, activities and programs offered by the school’s division of student life.

This was the last meeting of the Board of Trustees in its current form. A newly configured and smaller board takes over next month and will choose its own president.
