Tuition to Increase at Nebraska State Colleges
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Tuition will be going up this fall at Chadron, Peru and Wayne state colleges in Nebraska. The system's board of trustees approved raising the tuition rate $12 an hour, making the undergraduate resident rate $172 per credit hour at each college. The system had requested $54.9 million in state support for the coming year, $2.8 million more than the $52.1 million finally approved. Officials say closing the gap meant raising tuition and cutting some expenses. The system serves more than 9,000 students.
