PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Education has frozen tuition at the state’s four technical schools with some help from the Legislature.

The board approved 2016-17 tuition and fees on Monday.

The overall cost per credit is set to be $150, and students will keep paying $109 per credit for in-state tuition thanks to funding for the freeze approved by lawmakers during the 2016 session.

The per-credit fees are $35 for facilities; $5 for maintenance and repair; and $1 for technology.

Lawmakers in the 2016 session also supported a tuition freeze for South Dakota residents who attend one of the state’s public universities.
