UL Tuition To See Significant Increase
College students in the UL system will be paying more next year. That's because of a 10 percent tuition hike that the University of Louisiana Board of Supervisors have approved for all nine campuses in the system for the 2013-14 school year.
What that means for the average in-state student will be a $546 increase, bringing their total tuition to around $6,100.
The increases, which were approved Tuesday, are contingent on each campus passing goals for performance that were a part of the 2010 LA GRAD Act. Officials say that they believe all nine schools will be able to pass.
The changes will impact 90,000 students, not only at the UL campus in Lafayette, but also at the University of New Orleans, UL-Monroe, Southeastern University in Hammond, Grambling State, Northwestern State in Natchitoches, Louisiana Tech in Ruston, Nicholls State in Thibodaux and McNeese State in Lake Charles.
