Parents with children in Alabama's prepaid college tuition program are frustrated that they can't plan for the future while the Alabama Supreme Court decides how much tuition the program will pay.

Parents told the program's board chairman that they are looking at coming up with $600 to $700 per semester if the Supreme Court allows the program to pay tuition at 2010 levels rather than current levels.

They also said they're worried that the program will close down if the court requires current tuition. The board is paying the current tuition while it awaits a ruling.

Liz Jones of Andalusia has a daughter who's a sophomore at the University of Alabama. She said she doesn't know where she will get extra money to keep her in college.
