Clemson University trustees reduce spring tuition

 CLEMSON, SC (AP) - A vote by Clemson University trustees means reduced tuition and fees for the spring semester to avoid a state-imposed ban on construction at colleges that raised costs by more than 7%.

The school said in a news release that trustees voted Friday to roll back the 7.5% tuition increase approved in June.

President James Barker says the building moratorium has delayed construction on two projects, neither of which is being paid for with tuition funds.
