ND 4-year colleges to see 3.5 percent tuition rise

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Board of Higher

Education says the state's four-year colleges should limit tuition

increases to 3.5 percent for the next school year.

Tuition charges at North Dakota's two-year schools will stay

unchanged. The state university system has six four-year

universities and five two-year colleges.

Board members approved the tuition rates during a meeting

Thursday at Lake Region State College.

Colleges may ask for a larger tuition increase. The board and a

legislative budget committee would have to approve any increase

larger than 4 percent.

Separately, the board approved guidelines saying workers on each

campus should get an average 5 percent pay raise during the next

budget year. Full-time workers should get a raise of at least $100

a month.
