Refueling Tech budget
As Tech enters its third consecutive year with a reduced budget, officials look to the Granting Resources and Autonomy for Diplomas Act for support.
The GRAD Act, which was enacted earlier this summer, allows higher education institutions to raise tuition by 10 percent each year if they meet certain criteria. Some of these benchmarks include retention and graduation rates, research productivity, student-to-teacher ratios and elimination and reduction of remedial and associate degrees.
Unfortunately, said Tech President Dan Reneau, that means higher fees for students.
