Italian students to pay up to double tuition if behind

(ANSA) - Rome, July 27 - Italian university students falling behind in their coursework will pay up to double their tuition fees, according to an amendment to the government spending review. The amendment, which was approved by the Senate budget committee Friday, would be applied most heavily to students from wealthier families. Students with familiy incomes lower than 90,000 euros would pay a 25% tuition penalty. The measure is part of the government's hotly contested plans to save 26 billion euros over the next three years after conducting a review of public spending.
