In an e-mail to faculty, staff and students, Texas A&M President Robert Gates wrote that he will not approve any differential tuition proposals until the spring of next year.
The concept, which is being adopted by a number of universities across the country, would allow different schools on the campus to ask for higher tuition based on their individual needs.
The Mays Business School was the first school to officially request differential tuition. Back on February 20th, Gates said he had a number of questions about the change, questions that he wanted definitive answers to before approving.
A tuition board had already approved the Mays' request, but approval from Gates and the Board of Regents is also required.
If a plan is approved by all three parties next spring, the new tuition would not go into effect until the fall of 2008.
