Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell approves tuition hike

News

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – The Community College Board has approved a tuition hike at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell.

The Roswell Daily Record reports that the board voted Tuesday to approve increases in both per-credit-hour tuition and fees. In-district students will pay $78 a credit hour instead of $69 an hour, a 13 percent increase. Out-of-district and out-of-state student will also see tuition increases.

The full Eastern New Mexico University system’s board of regents will vote on the increase later this week.

All students will also see fees increase from $12 to $16 per credit hour. Fees primarily pay for internet service throughout the campus and for maintaining computer labs.

The tuition increase comes as the school faces increased cuts in state funding. ENMU-R President Dr. John Madden says the increases should cover about 36 percent of appropriation cuts from the state.
