NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — They’re the colleges that many Tennesseans rely on to learn skills they can use on the job, and they’re the schools Gov. Bill Lee has pushed more people to attend. But this week, the leaders in charge of the state’s community colleges and Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology are ready to approve a tuition increase that will have students shelling out more for that education.
If approved, the increases would cost community college students about $54 more per semester, and students at the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology $31 more per trimester, roughly a 2.5% increase.
