The debate over college tuition increases came to a head this week as the S.C. Budget and Control Board voted Wednesday to freeze construction at four-year public schools that raised tuition by more than 7 percent and two-year schools that raised it by more than 6.3 percent.

The construction freeze applies at Clemson University, which raised its tuition by 7.5 percent, the College of Charleston, which raised its tuition by 14.75 percent and The Citadel, which raised tuition 13 percent. It will not apply at USC-Columbia because its tuition increase was 6.9 percent. Coastal Carolina and Francis Marion Universities also are exempted from the freeze because their increases were below 7 percent. The board also exempted deferred maintenance and projects that affect health and safety, so those can continue.
