The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga remains the most affordable university in the UT system, thanks to a zero percent tuition increase approved by the UT Board of Trustees at its annual meeting Friday.
UTC’s budget recommendations are part of the $2.9-billion systemwide budget approved by the UT Board for fiscal year 2023, which begins July 1.
"In addition to offering in-state undergraduates the lowest tuition and fees of any UT campus in the state of Tennessee, UTC also provides substantial regional and border state tuition waivers to students from counties and states adjacent to Tennessee," officials said.
An additional benefit making UTC even more affordable is the expansion of HOPE scholarship funding from the Tennessee Education Lottery. Beginning this fall, HOPE Scholarship amounts will increase to $4,500 annually for full-time, eligible freshmen and sophomores and $5,700 annually for juniors and seniors. Scholarship amounts most recently were $3,500 a year for full-time, eligible freshmen and sophomores and $4,500 for juniors and seniors at public four-year institutions.
The per-student funding increase is the largest in HOPE Scholarships for students at public four-year universities since the scholarship’s creation.
