MIDLAND - Midland College trustees voted to increase tuition by $3 per credit hour for in-district and Pecos County students and $7 per credit hour for out-of-district and non-resident students.
The increase will move lower-level tuition for in-district students to $56 per credit hour, out-of-district students to $103 per credit hour and non-resident students to $142 per credit hour.
For students in upper-level courses, in-district student tuition will increase to $104 per credit hour, $151 per credit hour for out-of district students and $190 per credit hour for non-resident students.
The increase represents approximately 4 percent for in-district students, 6 percent for out-of-district students and 4.5 percent for non-resident students.
These increases will begin with the fall 2013 semester and are seen as a way to balance the college’s budget when the likelihood is that additional state funds is slim and the need to pay faculty and staff higher wages is paramount.
