Parents and students learn what they’ll be paying for next year’s tuition when the Board of Regents votes today and Wednesday on the finances for the 31 public colleges in the University System of Georgia.
The board always takes its two-day April meeting to one of its campuses, meaning it’s never under the scrutiny of the Atlanta media when it annually votes on tuition and fees. The timing is based on the state Legislature’s approval of the coming year’s state budget. To maintain surprise, the system staff did not include information on the proposed tuition and fee increases in the documents posted on its public website, instead mailing them separately to the regents.
