9 community colleges to raise tuition this fall - Jeff Amy, Clarion-Ledger

Nine of Mississippi’s 15 community and junior colleges will raise charges on students this fall, with the average price of tuition and fees rising by 4 percent statewide. On average, a student will pay $2,577 for two semesters of full-time classes, up from $2,476 in the 2014-15 year, according to figures from the state Community College Board. Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will charge the most, $2,992 for two semesters of full-time classes. The Perkinston-based college is raising tuition by 20 percent after four years of basically steady charges, and President Mary Graham said the big bump in tuition was needed to preserve the quality of Mississippi Gulf Coast’s offerings. http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2015/07/03/community-colleges-raise-tuition-fall/29681791/
