Budget Cuts Will Cause Tuition Hikes For Md. College Students - Pat Warren, CBS Baltimore

The university system of Maryland is raising tuition five percent. “None of us like to see this,” Chancellor, William Kirwan with University system of Maryland said. The increase comes after more than $40-million was cut at the end of the O’Malley administration. The university is trying to compensate with a hiring freeze and other cost-saving measures. “I regret to say students have to share in that sacrifice,” Kirwan said. And the students are well aware. “I think unfortunately the state needs to do what it’s going to do, but I think for a lot of students, especially low-income students, it’s going to be a really big problem,” student Sarah Gregerman said.
