COLLEGE STATION (May 3, 2014) The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents has approved a $3.8 billion budget that guarantees fixed tuition and fees for students.
The budget establishes the spending plan for 10 of the 11 universities in the system including Texas A&M-Central Texas.
In January regents approved expenditures for the flagship campus in College Station.
The measure finalized Thursday includes a combined 6 percent increase in tuition and fees.
Revenue is projected to decrease system-wide by $8.6 million while expenditures are forecast to grow by $30.3 million.
Board approval came with little discussion, but Regent Tony Buzbee questioned administrative salaries and also expressed concern that improvements at the Galveston campus weren't being addressed.
Regents had said the Galveston upgrades were important.
