The Texas A&M Board of Regents will discuss a proposed increase in tuition at a meeting Thursday at Texas A&M–Galveston. The proposal, announced Dec. 4 at a public hearing, intends to appease House Bill 29, requiring public universities in Texas to have a guaranteed tuition rate for a student’s first four years of enrollment in the institution. To comply with the bill, Texas A&M would raise tuition two percent per class starting at six percent for the incoming freshman class, four percent for sophomores and two percent for upperclassmen, said Provost Karan Watson at the public hearing that addressed the issue in December.
