NH community college system freezes tuition for next year
CONCORD (AP) — The Community College System of New Hampshire is freezing its tuition for the 2016-17 academic year.
The board of trustees voted Thursday to keep in-state tuition at the state's seven community colleges at $200 per credit, which translates to about $6,000 a year for full-time tuition.
The vote took place at its meeting at River Valley Community College in Lebanon.
Trustees haven't raised tuition since 2011. It reduced tuition in 2014 by five percent, following lawmakers' decision to support the system in the state budget.
Gov. Maggie Hassan praised the tuition freeze, saying the system has been doing good work to strengthen its partnerships with the business community.
