Tuition Changes Unlikely To Apply In Florida
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden says the Obama administration's plans to pressure states into keeping college and university tuition down probably won't apply to Florida.
Biden says that's because Florida's tuition rates already are among the nation's lowest. Biden made remarks at an Obama campaign fundraiser reception Monday.
State University System officials had criticized the administration's plans prior to Biden's appearance at Florida State University to promote tuition affordability.
A system spokeswoman later said officials were hopeful Florida would be spared from any penalties but haven't seen anything in writing yet.
President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address that federal aid should be withheld from colleges and universities that don't keep net tuition down and provide good value.
