PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - The board that oversees Florida's public universities has approved an amendment paving the way for higher tuition rates for certain graduate level courses.
At its meeting on Thursday, the Board of Governors approved a process for the state's 11 public universities to adopt a market tuition rate for select courses.
Florida has among the lowest in-state tuition rates in the nation. Market-based tuition would be more in line with the rates offered by private and other elite schools.
The higher tuition would only apply to certain graduate level online and continuing education courses. Classes in critical needs areas, such as health professions, would not be included.
University board of trustees would need to submit a proposal to the Board of Trustees for consideration.
