GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) - Tuition and fees are going up at Garden City Community College.

The Garden City Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1er8O5z ) that GCCC trustees voted Tuesday to increase tuition, fees, room and board for the 2014-15 school year.

Beginning this fall, there will be a $2-per-credit-hour increase in tuition and a $3-per-credit-hour increase in student fees. In-state tuition and fees will go from $80 to $85 per credit hour; border state tuition and fees will increase from $94 to $99 per credit hour, and out-of-state tuition and fees will increase from $99 to $104 per credit hour.

Trustees also approved a hike in room rates, pushing dorm rates from $1,100 to $1,150 per semester for double occupancy rooms.

Of the 19 community colleges in Kansas, GCCC is the fifth lowest in tuition and fees.
