Students at public universities are getting a break, sort of.
The average cost of in-state tuition at public 4 year colleges this year is $8,900 a year.
That's an increase of less than 3 percent.
It's the smallest bump in tuition costs since 1975.
This is also a dramatic slowdown from the annual 8 percent increase in tuition costs that became the norm over the last few decades.
