FVCC Losing $1.3 Million in State Funding Under Legislature’s Budget FVCC Board of Trustees voted to increase tuition and fees by $16.40 per credit - DILLON TABISH, Flathead Beacon

Following the passage of the state government budget bill, Flathead Valley Community College is poised to lose roughly $1.3 million in funding for the upcoming biennium, forcing the school to hike tuition and reduce expenditures, officials said. Faced with the likely reduction in state funding, the FVCC Board of Trustees on April 25 voted to increase tuition and fees by $16.40 per credit. One credit for an in-district student from Flathead or Lincoln counties currently costs roughly $143 in tuition and fees. The revenue generated by the increase in tuition and fees will cover less than 50 percent of the budget shortfall that was projected, and FVCC will reduce expenditures to make up for the remaining funding cuts, according to college officials.
