Most colleges covering, for now, grants state fails to pay - Mike Riopell, Daily Herald

Most suburban community colleges will float students money for grants that are tied up in Illinois' budget standoff, but at least one college says it's considering a tuition increase to help make up for a lack of state funding. "We weren't going to raise tuition much at all," College of Lake County President Jerry Weber said. But with the state not sending the college any money since July 1 and not paying for its Monetary Award Program scholarships, CLC might have to alter its budget planning for next year, Weber said. The college might switch from considering a hike of $3 per credit hour or less to an increase of $6 to $9 per credit hour, he said. http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160120/news/160129956/
