JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Students at the 11 schools in the State University System of Florida are rallying together to try to keep tuition from going up next year. Florida law allows a 15% tuition increase, and for the past several years it has gone up.
"I struggle to pay for it every semester," said University of North Florida student Amanda Weimar.
The 19-year-old junior is hoping to graduate with a degree in psychology, but if the cost of tuition keeps going up, she said she may not be able to afford it.
"It really is a big deal right now because I'm struggling to pay for my books this semester."
