Controversial legislation removing limits on how much UF and FSU can charge incoming freshman may be irrelevant for at least one more year.
The bill has yet to make it to Governor Rick Scott’s desk, but even if he signs it, the schools may not be prepared to raise tuition above 15 percent annual cap next fall.
Scott says he’s listening to both students and administrators and hasn’t decided how he will act on the bill.
“My filter is going to be, what is going to be the best for students in our state. What’s going to prepare them in the best manner to make sure they can get a job.”
FSU administrators will meet with Scott on April 12th to discuss the bill. School officials say a higher tuition rate would help attracted better professors, invest in cutting edge technology and bring high paying jobs to the state.
