ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A newly approved budget for Central New Mexico Community College for the next school year will have students paying higher tuition while employees get a pay raise.
Under new tuition rates approved by the governing board of the Albuquerque-based college, most students would face a 2.6 percent increase.
According to the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/10V2DlH ),that means a student carrying a full-time course load of 12 hours would pay $594 per semester. That’s up from $579 currently.
The $251.1 million budget approved Tuesday includes a 2 percent pay raise.
