Proposed tuition and fee changes at Texas A&M and all other system universities for the next two academic years are on hold.
During the regents November meeting, chairman Tim Leach of Midland asked and received a motion to table tuition and fee changes.
Leach made the request because A&M president Katherine Banks was not able to attend the meeting due to being in self-isolation after contracting coronavirus.
Leach says Dr. Banks had what he calls “some innovative restructuring that she wanted to present”.
According to agenda information, A&M’s proposal included three undergraduate tuition and fee plans.
Non-STEM disciplines are charged $5,900 dollars a semester. Math and science lab-based disciplines are charged almost $6,300 dollars. And applied specialized disciplines are charged almost $6,900 a semester.
The proposal also calls to align rates for health science center undergrads and grad students with A&M.
No date was announced to consider tuition and fees for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 academic years. The next regularly scheduled regents meetings are February 16-18, 2022.
