TRENTON, MO (2011-01-25) A group representing the college in Trenton says tuition increases this year should be held to $5 a credit hour.
The Missouri Association of Community College is made up of presidents and chancellors from community colleges across Missouri. It's announcing the leaders have agreed to ask their boards of trustees to keep the tuition hike at $5 or below. The association says North Central and other colleges were bracing for state funding cuts of 10 to 20% much more than the 7% the governor announced during his state of the state address. Because of this, officials say they can afford a self-imposed cap on tuition increases trying to keep accessibility affordable. Despite the governor's recommendation, the final amount North Central will get from the state is determined by lawmakers. The North Central Missouri College Board is set to meet tonight in its regular meeting. That meeting will start at 5:30 at the Frey Administrative Center on campus.
