The Texas A&M System has a big budget to work with for the upcoming fiscal year.
Friday morning, the Board of Regents approved a $2.6 billion budget, which shows a five percent increase in total operational activities, an eight percent increase in expenditures at the system schools, and and 11 percent tuition increase.
The main Texas A&M campus will get one billion of that $2.6 billion sum, by far the most of any university or agency. Prairie View A&M came in at just over $140 million.
In total, the budget covers nine universities, seven state agencies and the health science center.
