NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Norwich University says it will eliminate an untold number of jobs by June 1 as it continues to try to hold down costs.

The Times Argus newspaper (https://bit.ly/1cKoSju ) reports that a college spokeswoman confirmed the looming job cuts but declined to say how many people would be laid off.

Daphne Larkin, assistant director of communications at the college, tells the paper the layoffs come as the school changes business practices to look for ways to keep tuition down.

It costs about $45,000 a year for tuition and room and board at the college in Northfield that includes civilian students and a Corps of Cadets interested in military service.

In 2008, the school cut 12 jobs and eliminated 15 vacant positions because of a $3.6 million budget shortfall.
