GALVESTON -- The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents unanimously approved a tuition and fee increase for its flagship campus over the objections of a few students who drove 150 miles to lobby against the change.

The regents unanimously approved the changes at a board meeting held here on Thursday. The vote marks the first tuition increase approved by the board since 2009. Freshmen entering Texas A&M next fall will see the largest average tuition and fee increase of about 6 percent and current students will see smaller increases.

    That will make the full time in state tuition (only) about $1000 more than the full time in state tuition at LSU. That is because the state of Louisiana still provides significant support for the university. The current Republican dominated legislature in Texas only pays 18%.

    Allnoing...there was one comment before yours...it dealt with Rick Perry's interest in micro-managing A&M....it was pro A&M...so, where are the Anti-A&M comments you are referring to?

    "The regents did not take up a proposal by Gov. Rick Perry to create a system administrative position of equal power to Chancellor John Sharp.", thus marking the beginning of the end of Gov. Perry's ability to micromanage at Texas A&M.
