Minnesota State approves BSU/NTC budget: Tuition and fee hikes, $1.56 million in cuts - Joe Bowen, Bemidji Pioneer

Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College students will pay more for their schooling next year, even as university and college leaders trimmed their schools' operating budgets. Minnesota State's board of trustees approved Wednesday the college and university system's budget for next year, which includes widespread tuition and student fee hikes and a $1.56 million in cuts at BSU and Northwest Technical College. At BSU, university leaders cut some duty days and release time for faculty there, deferred some special equipment purchases, reduced travel and supply budgets and student worker hours, left open a vacant maintenance worker job, and eliminated a fixed-time faculty position at a university-run business administration program at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
