The full Board will meet on Friday, when members will vote on the Finance and Business Operations Committee’s recommendations for tuition and fees. The committee recommends maintenance fee/tuition increases of 3 percent for each of the 13 community colleges across the state and ranging from 1.4 to 6 percent for the six TBR universities at its June 4 meeting. Students at the Tennessee Technology Centers will not see a maintenance fee increase. The recommendations are lower than recent years thanks to increased state-funded general operating dollars.
