SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) - Western New Mexico University is raising its tuition but guarantees it will then remain unchanged for a student’s entire college career.

The university’s Board of Regents unanimously approved an initiative Friday that gives eligible students a locked-in tuition rate.

Starting next fall, students enrolled in at least 15 credit hours each semester and that maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average will qualify for the program.

WNMU President Joseph Shepard says students won’t have to worry about predicting tuition costs.

Regents, however, also approved a tuition increase of $7.32 per credit hour for in-state, undergraduate students.

School officials say the expected $350,000 in additional revenue will go toward scholarships and student-employment costs.
