However, a tuition grant shall not exceed the lesser of: a. The total tuition and mandatory fees for that student for two semesters or the trimester or quarter equivalent, less the base amount determined annually by the college student aid commission, which base amount shall be within ten dollars of the average tuition for two semesters or the trimester equivalent of undergraduate study at the state universities under the board of regents, but in any event the base amount shall not be less than four hundred dollars; or b. For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2000, and for each following fiscal year, four thousand dollars. 2.
