BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - It likely will cost students more this fall to attend Louisiana’s community and technical colleges, pending approval from the state Board of Regents.
The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1lo0RG8 ) the Louisiana Community and Technical College Board signed off on up to 10 percent increases, with little discussion and without dissent, during a meeting Wednesday.
According to estimates from the board, the increases in tuition and fees will equal about $161 a semester for a full-time student at the state’s community colleges, $114 a semester at technical colleges and $163 a semester at Baton Rouge Community College.
System President Monty Sullivan says the figures could change because tuition is dependent on the Southern Regional Education Board’s average tuition rate.
