A higher education will soon come at a higher cost, as the University of Louisiana Board of Supervisors approved a 10 percent tuition hike at all nine of their campuses this week for the 2013-14 school year. The UL System is the largest in Louisiana with 90,000 students at the University of New Orleans, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Southeastern University in Hammond, Grambling State, Northwestern State in Natchitoches, Louisiana Tech in Ruston, Nicholls State in Thibodaux and McNeese State in Lake Charles.
According to a report from The Associated Press, the average increase for in-state students will be $546, bringing a year’s tuition to about $6,103.
