Tuition at Florida universities to go up 15%

The Board of Governors that oversees Florida's 11 public universities approved Thursday to add a 7 percent tuition increase to an 8 percent raise already ordered by the Legislature.

The board approved the 15 percent raise during a meeting at the University of South Florida. The increase was expected, having been requested by the trustees of each school. The extra revenue will help replace reduced funding from the state.

For the 2011-12 school year students will pay between $21.42 and $32 more per credit hour, depending on which school they attend.
