NASHVILLE (AP) – The full board of the Tennessee Board of Regents has voted to increase tuition at its institutions this year.

The board on Friday approved increasing tuition 5.8 percent at its 13 community colleges, up to 6.9 percent at its six universities, and 8.5 percent at its 27 colleges of applied technology.

In the case of the universities, East Tennessee State University will see the biggest jump, with an increase of $442 per year.

Most students in the University of Tennessee system, which is overseen by a separate governing board, will see a 6 percent jump after the UT Board of Trustees approved the increase on Thursday.

The hikes are mostly a result of state revenue shortfalls that made it tough for the governor and the Legislature to appropriate new funds.
