Texas Tech Board of Regents to Consider Fixed Tuition and Fees for New Students

Chad Hasty, KFYO.com

The Texas Tech University System Board of Regents will consider a number of items at their meeting this week.

The Board of Regents will meet on Thursday, May 16th and Friday, May 17th, and will consider approval of a strategy for a new student housing complex on the Texas Tech campus.

The project to construct a 500-bed student housing complex and a separate food service and retail facility was approved in December 2012 by the Board, with a total project budget of $50 million.

The group will also consider the fee assessment schedule for the fall semester for Texas Tech, the TTU Health Sciences Center, and Angelo State University.

Another notable item which will be voted on by the regents is a possible direction to Tech and Angelo State to study and present a plan for permitting new students to opt into a fixed tuition and fee contract.

According to the Board of Regents agenda, this could be an option for students entering the universities in the fall semester of 2014.

Earlier this month, the Texas House of Representatives gave tentative approval to a bill which would require public universities in Texas to offer fixed four-year tuition prices. The bill has not yet been considered by the Texas Senate.
