NIC News: Tuition up & a new BB coach

COEUR d'ALENE - North Idaho College trustees decided Wednesday to balance the college's budget for the next fiscal year by increasing tuition rather than levying more property taxes.

The trustees accepted the college administration's proposal to fill a budget shortfall of $352,182 for fiscal year 2015 by raising tuition by $2 per credit for Kootenai County students and $6 per credit for out-of-district students. Local students taking 12 credits will now pay $1,511 per semester, a 1.6 percent increase.

"We are still one of the lowest-cost colleges in the region, and in the state," said NIC Controller Sarah Garcia, who presented the administration's budget recommendation to trustees. Maureen Dolan, CdA Press
