2-year colleges could see a spike in tuition this fall
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's community and technical colleges could start charging more for tuition and fees this fall.
The Board of Supervisors for the Louisiana Community and Technical College System approved a measure on Wednesday to allow colleges the ability to raise their tuition up to 10 percent. The board said the measure is supposed to generate more then $14 million in revenue for the entire community and technical college system in this state.
The money generated will help expand high demand wage programs such as engineering technology, finance, computer science, electrical, industrial production and other new programs.
The Board of Regents will make the final decision, which they plan to vote on later this month.
