PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Governor Lincoln Chafee has proposed a $10 dollar increase in funding for the state's higher education system. But it won't be enough to prevent tuition increases at two of the three state schools.
Tuition will remain the same next year at the Community College of Rhode Island. But students at the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College will have to pay more. Ray DiPasquale, the president of CCRI and the state Commissioner of Higher Education, says it's unclear how much more.
