Seliger said the result of the new bill would be to raise the value of postsecondary education by incentivizing high graduation rates, persistence, and a shorter time to degree among all students. In short, SB 778 holds Texas public universities accountable by requiring institutions to earn the right to increase tuition beyond inflation.
