Undergraduate students at Chadron, Peru and Wayne State Colleges will see an increase in their tuition bills next fall.

The Nebraska Sate Colleges Board of Trustees approved a 9.2% tuition increase this week.

The $8 jump brings tuition per credit hour for Nebraska residents to $95.
That means a student taking a full load of 15 hours will pay 120 more dollars per semester.

Tuition for graduate students goes up to $120.25 per credit hour for Nebraska residents.

Chairman Sheryl Lindau of Wayne says the decision to raise tuition was difficult, and was made with consideration for maintaining quality and putting students first.

State College System Executive Director Stan Carpenter says cuts in state funding and rising costs for such essentials as salaries, utilities and insurance left the board with no alternative.
