KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Trustees have approved tuition increases at each of the University of Tennessee campuses for the next academic year.
Media outlets report the Board of Trustees approved a 2% tuition increase at the Knoxville campus and a 2.5% increase at the Chattanooga and Martin campuses at a Friday meeting.
Tuition will increase by $258 at the Knoxville campus, $216 at the Chattanooga campus and $236 at the Martin campus.
