ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Universities will see more budget cuts next school year but students still may not see a big difference. Tuition is supposed to increase.

Tuition did not go up for ASU this past year. The university system's Board of Regents will meet to discuss how much tuition will increase. Board members will also discuss how much the budget needs to be cut.

This year's ASU budget was cut eight percent by $2.3 million. Next year should be closer to seven percent.

"What we don't know is how much new money we'll get and we'll get some new money because we're growing and tuition will be increased, but we don't know yet how much that will be," said ASU Fiscal Affairs Vice President," Larry Wakefield.

The Board of Regents will meet May 12th to discuss budget cuts and tuition hikes.
