NWCC trustees approve tuition increase
For the first time in five years, the Northwest Mississippi Community College Board of Trustees gave approval for an increase in tuition and some fees. The increase, which will take effect for the fall 2010 semester, was approved unanimously by the board during its regular meeting June 10 in the Haraway Center on the Senatobia campus.
“We never like to raise tuition, but it’s necessary with the economic times we are currently experiencing,” said Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears. “Our tuition remains less than that of many community colleges in the state, and we are offsetting the increase by deleting some fees which will help students manage the increase.”
