Proposed FAU budget would increase both tuition, fees 15 percent




The average in-state undergraduate student at Florida Atlantic University can expect an increase of about $424 in tuition and $184 in other fees for the 2010-2011 school year if the board of trustees approves the proposed increases next month.

A student taking 15 credit hours per semester would pay a total of about $3,254 for tuition and $1,540 in other fees for the school year, not including a $64.90 transportation access fee per semester, which all students must pay.

That's a 15 percent increase in tuition, which is the same percentage increase students saw last year and the most a public university can increase tuition under state law.

Another 15%? Our tuition is already pretty high for a 'commuter' school and a tier 4 school at that.

Here's an update, rubber stamp on the way later this month for final approval:

============================================================
======================

Students at Florida Atlantic University will face one of the biggest increases in tuition and fees in recent years.

In addition to a 15 percent tuition increase–the same as last year–a committee of the Board of Trustees approved jumps of 15 percent or more for several student fees.

And students would continue to heavily subsidize FAU sports, with the athletic fee rising from $14.30 to $16.45, or from $343 to $395 for full-time students. FAU has some steep athletic fees, while students at the University of Florida pay only about $50.

Until alumni donate more money this trend is going to continue.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
