HC trustees approve modest tuition hike

Students attending Howard College next semester will have to pay a little more per class hour as trustees with the Howard County Junior College District slightly increased across the board tuition rates Monday.“The college monitors tuition rates across the state as it makes decisions relative to tuition,” said Dr. Cheryl Sparks, Howard College president. “We tend to try to keep our rates at state average. Increasing the in-district rate by $2 will likely get us right at the state rate. The out-of-distinct rate increase will get us to state average... the same thing with out-of-state tuition."For more of this story, read Tuesday's edition of the Herald.
