BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - The board of Southeast Community College has voted to increase tuition next year by more than 5 percent.

Beatrice radio station KWBE reports (https://bit.ly/1emJJxb) that the board voted Tuesday during a meeting in Beatrice to increase tuition by 5.39 percent. The increase means the rate for a credit-hour will go from $55.50 to $58.50 for in-state students. The board also voted to increase dorm rates by about 3 percent.

The community college has seen a $1 million deficit in projected tuition revenue this year because of declining enrollment.
