Board members approved a tuition waiver to offset a legally-mandated 1.7 percent tuition increase, which Scott has lobbied state universities to do. The state Board of Governors must still approve the decision.
Students will see an increase of $3.46 per credit hour due to an increase in fees. The Capital Improvement Trust Fund fee increased from $6.76 to $8.76 per hour, and the athletic fee rose from $12.79 to $13.54 per credit hour. (A $4 per hour fee for moving to NCAA Division I status is unchanged.)
Board members also voted to approve the performance review for President Wilson Bradshaw, kicking in a contractually obligated 5 percent, or $17,943, raise and an $80,000 performance bonus. His salary will rise to $376,806.
Bradshaw turned down a 5 percent raise and $60,000 bonus for the 2012-13 year. He has twice turned down raises out of six years.
