Bowles sends on tuition requests

Amounts less than legislature mandate

UNC-system President Erskine Bowles is continuing to promote a lower tuition increase for system schools than the increase proposed by the N.C. General Assembly.

Bowles’ recommendations match the ones created by individual campuses in the last few months. All are less than the tuition increase mandated by the N.C. General Assembly at the close of its 2009 session.

At its monthly meeting today, the budget and finance committee of the UNC-system Board of Governors is expected to authorize Bowles’ recommendations.

 

Bowles’ 2010-11 recommended tuition increases:

The legislature established tuition increases in August 2009 for the UNC system that are the lesser of $200 or 8 percent of the 2009-10 amount.

But Bowles has expressed hope that the legislature will replace its mandated increase with the alternative increases recommended by him, assuming they are approved by the Board of Governors.

Bowles also is asking the legislature to return tuition revenue to the campuses.

The average school’s tuition increase based on the legislative mandate is 7.2 percent, or $180. The average increase proposal from UNC campuses is 5.2 percent, or $131.

If the committee approves the tuition increases, it will go to the full board Friday for a vote and then on to the legislature.
