UT martin tuition increases 9.9 Percent
MARTIN, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees approved a 9.9 percent instate tuition increase for students attending the University of Tennessee at Martin effective for the 2011 fall semester. Approval came Thursday during the board’s annual meeting in Knoxville.
Instate tuition and fees will now cost undergraduate students an additional $264 or $3,359 per semester to attend UT Martin. An additional campus out-of-state fee was capped, resulting in a total cost for out-of-state students totaling $9,564 per semester. Full-time undergraduate enrollment is a minimum of 12 hours.
“Despite our best efforts to manage costs, raising tuition and fees is a painful action that is necessary given the continuing reduction in state support,” said Dr. Tom Rakes, UT Martin chancellor.
Tuition and fees will increase $313 for instate graduate students at UT Martin for a total cost of $3,895 per semester starting this fall. An additional out-of-state fee also was capped, resulting in a total cost of $10,100 per semester. Full-time graduate enrollment is nine hours per semester.
Also approved were a $15 fee in two math labs, a $30 fee for two engineering courses and a $125 fee for biology field investigations course. The Student Activity fee was increased $10 per semester, the residence hall fees increased 4.4-4.9 percent, and meal plans also reflected a 3 percent increase.
