University of Tennessee plans to hold tuition steady for another year

In the face of rising inflation, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville will recommend holding steady on its tuition and fees for the third year in a row.

Thanks to a $90 million investment in Tennessee universities and colleges across the state included in Gov. Bill Lee’s budget, UT Knoxville won’t have to charge its students more when they return in the fall.

The campus will receive a total of $217 million from the state government, said Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Chris Cimino. It’s enough to make a difference.

“The governor’s budget was very kind to us, over $210 — actually $217 — million of additional support and resources,” Cimino said. “And that along with enrollment growth, we made the decision not to go up on tuition.”
