SRC Plans Tuition, Fee Hikes

Canton, IL – Spoon River College students will pay about seven percent more for in- or out-of-district tuition this fall. SRC President Robert Ritschel says the move will partially compensate for falling state support. In addition, he says full employment in the region will keep college enrollment from increasing. He says this means a fairly level budget for the coming year. Ritschel says the board also approved a $2 per credit hour fee increase that will go to broadening and improving the range of activities at the college. He says students asked that the activity fee be increased.
