Northwest Arkansas Community College board approves fee increases - Dave Perozek, Arkansas Online

The Northwest Arkansas Community College Board agreed Monday to increase some student fees to help balance the budget for next school year. Increases in six fees will cost the typical full-time student an extra $120 per year, according to Debi Buckley, chief financial officer. The increases take effect July 1 with the beginning of the new fiscal year. "We hate to do it, but this is something we have to do to move forward with the institution," said Ric Clifford, board chairman. The college this summer also will introduce a $5 transcript fee to cover transcript issuance costs, though each graduate will receive one copy for free. The new fee schedule is expected to generate about $621,000 in additional revenue for the college next school year. http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2015/apr/14/northwest-arkansas-community-college-bo/?f=news-arkansas
