(Atlanta-AP) -- The presidents of the state's four research colleges want an average tuition increase of ten percent for the next school year. The state Board of Regents received requests yesterday from the presidents of the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University and the Medical College of Georgia.
Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor says the hikes could kill the HOPE scholarship program. The 18 members of the Board of Regents will vote on the tuition changes during their meeting in Atlanta in May.
At the University of Georgia, the request translates into a $160 tuition hike for in-state students each semester; $699 for out-of-state. The requests were sparked by an e-mail April first from Board of Regents Chancellor Tom Meredith, asking university presidents what kind of tuition changes they would prefer next school year.
The presidents responded that they would like tuition increases. And not just at research universities, either. On average, regional and state universities asked for 7.5% increases and two-year colleges want 6.65% increases.
Taylor insists that HOPE can best be served by freezing tuition rates at their current levels.
