NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Memphis' plan to freeze tuition for in-state residents has won approval from the Tennessee Board of Regents.
The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/1nryllo ) reports the plan also includes a tuition cut for out-of-state students.
U of M students from Tennessee taking 15 hours per semester will pay the same tuition for the upcoming academic year they paid last year, $7,410, plus mandatory fees of $1,563.
Fees are increasing by $307, with most of the proceeds funding a new student recreation center approved by student government.
U of M officials say it's the first time in 22 years that basic tuition won't increase.
The board approved the university's plan to cut tuition for all out-of-state students, and more so for those graduating from high schools within 250 miles of Memphis.
