Students tackle increasing college loan debt

AUSTIN (KXAN) — On Friday, the University of Texas System said they were looking at the possibility of raising tuition for the 2017-18 year. Chancellor William McRaven says UT is having a tough time keeping up with the costs as state appropriations are cut. Higher tuition means more money students will have to pay back when they graduate.
