Hot Springs 2-year school to seek tuition increase

Posted: Updated:

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - National Park Community College says it must increase tuition rates now that voters turned down a millage increase that would have funded the school in Hot Springs.

President Sally Carder says the school is now working out a budget that will be presented in May - and it will include an increase in tuition and fees.

On April 9, voters rejected a 1.7-mill increase that would have paid for a new technical campus for high school classes, college courses and increased workforce training. Carder tells the Sentinel-Record (http://bit.ly/15oKJNE ) that the college is falling farther behind with its equipment and technology because it can't afford to buy more.

National Park Community College is a 2-year school with an enrollment of about 4,000 students.
