NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Pulaski Technical College leaders have approved an 18 percent tuition increase for the coming academic year as a way to counteract decreasing enrollment at the two-year school.

The board of trustees approved the tuition increase Monday. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1TzuA0l ) students will pay $20 more per credit hour beginning July 1. Students will also pay $1 more in the property-management fee, which increases total mandatory fees to $46 per credit hour.

Officials said that without the increase, the college would face a loss of $2.5 million.

The college had 7,648 students for the 2015-2016 fiscal year, which is its lowest enrollment in a decade. Pulaski Tech’s trustees are now considering whether to join the University of Arkansas System, as well as discussing ways to increase the college’s enrollment.
