Tuition at state universities is expected to increase, sending alarm to students and parents.
Michael Boulus works with the President's Council, a group representing the state's public universities. He said, "While we don't know for certain yet, chances are good state universities will have to raise tuition this year."
That's because funding plans being considered by the state legislature don't provide enough aid.
Students and parents said that means they'll have to work harder and take out more loans to pay for school.
Most schools expect to set tuition rates within a month.
