NASHVILLE (TIMES FREE PRESS) — The Tennessee Higher Education Commission this afternoon approved tuition hikes of 3 to 6 percent next fall for students attending the UT-Chattanooga, Chattanooga State and Cleveland State.

Students attending the state's 26 free-standing state technology centers and a 27th one located at Chattanooga State face increases of between 5 to 10 percent.

Top increase ranges factor in Gov. Bill Haslam's directive to state departments and agencies to submit budgets that they prepare for additional budget cuts of up to 5 percent.

THEC Executive Director Richard Rhoda explained to members that staff recommendations discussed in an earlier meeting Thursday "are complying with the administration's request on that."
