Governor’s Higher Ed Panel settles on plan to keep tuition for science, engineering and other high-demand fields lower

Update (Wednesday evening):  Here is the South Florida Sun-Sentinel story.

From the Associated Press:

Charging different tuition rates for various degree programs could be used to encourage students to enter those fields deemed to be of strategic importance to the state’s needs and economy by offering lower rates.

Then panel also tentatively agreed to recommend that tuition not be increased for the next three years, or until the state’s unemployment rate drops below 7 percent, for degrees in high-skill, high-demand or high-wage areas. The state’s unemployment rate was 8.7 percent in September.
