Tuition, fee hikes coupled with TOPS cuts adding more financial stress for Louisiana students - REBEKAH ALLEN, the Advocate

The price of going to a public college or university in Louisiana is going up again for students starting school in the coming weeks. LSU, LSU-Alexandria, LSU-Shreveport, the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Southeastern Louisiana University have all increased tuition for the fall semester somewhere between 2 and 6 percent, which amounts to a few hundred dollars per semester. The other state schools either opted not to increase tuition or else could not do so because they didn't meet the requirements of the Louisiana GRAD Act, the legislative mechanism the various institutions are relying on to implement the hikes. But even at many of the schools where tuition is staying the same, fees are on the rise.
