Tuition increases at 3 WV community colleges rejected - Jake Jarvis, Charleston Gazette-Mail

The board that oversees West Virginia’s community and technical colleges rejected large tuition increases for three schools Friday, forcing the schools to reconsider their budgets more than two weeks after the start of the fiscal year. Members of the Council for Community and Technical Colleges approved only two of five requests to increase tuition more than 5 percent at their regular meeting at BridgeValley Community and Technical College, in South Charleston. Some colleges had asked for increases of more than 10 percent. State Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette, a member of the council, lambasted community college administrators for relying too much on tuition increases to fix their budget woes.
