Possible increase in tuition for Winthrop | Schools
ROCK HILL - Tuition and fees may go up at Winthrop University but students will have to wait until this summer to find out how much.
Members of the Board of Trustees executive committee met Wednesday to talk about possible increases.
They say they were just gathering information for the trustees to consider next month.
Officials say it's hard to know what action to take because they don't know yet how much they will receive from the state.
Lawmakers are of course dealing with a $50 Million difference in budget bills.
"What we want to do, is do what we need to do to have the kind of quality experience for our students that we need to have," said Rebecca Masters with Winthrop University.
"Yet, not unduly burden them because it's easy to set it high and then to have a little more to work with. That's not Winthrop's way of doing things."
Also at the executive board meeting this morning, board member Dr. Leford Cox was honored for his great expertise and outstanding service to the university. He is leaving the board after six years.
