WESSON, Miss. (AP) - Tuition will rise this fall for students at Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s campuses.

The Daily Leader reports (https://bit.ly/1PuXMzF ) the two-year college’s board of trustees on Thursday raised tuition $45 for fulltime students each semester. The student activity fund fee will also increase $45.

CoLin President Ronnie Nettles says the school’s tuition is in line with other community colleges. Nettles says the board was careful to not do more than was needed.

Other efforts to create a balanced budget have included not rehiring for some positions and to hire part-time instructors.

Nettles said that even though enrollment numbers are lower, they are graduating more people this year than they have before.

Copiah-Lincoln’s main campus is in Wesson. It also operates campuses in Natchez and Mendenhall.
