Tuition Increase Coming to Major Texas University

Texas A&M University will soon be seeing a tuition increase for out of state students.

The Texas A&M Board of Regents voted to raise tuition at its flagship institution, in College Station, according to the Texas Tribune. The increase is said to be about a $200 per credit hour increase. This would equal to a $3,000 a year increase for full-time out of state students.

Texas A&M President Michael Young said that the move is an attempt to make the cost of college equitable between out of state and Texas students.
