Correction: Tuition won't increase for Spring 2006
Breaking News Staff
The UH System Board of Regents will begin discussing how to raise funds for new programs and faculty in several departments on campus when it reconvenes in February. Many colleges are facing financial stresses despite a 5 percent increase in tuition and fees last spring.
The Daily Cougar incorrectly reported last month that tuition and fees would be increased again in Spring 2006 to cover shortfalls in state funding. Any increases in tuition and fees will be considered by the regents in the spring and implemented in Fall 2006, Board of Regents Chairman Leroy L. Hermes said in an e-mail to The Daily Cougar.
The regents initially proposed a 9 percent increase last spring but
settled on just 5 percent after receiving criticism from the Texas Legislature.
