Students may pay more to attend Eastern Iowa Community Colleges next fall. Tonight, the board of trustees will consider raising tuition by $9.00 per credit hour, bringing the total to $149 for in-state students.

Spokesman, Alan Campbell, says enrollment at Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott community colleges has only fallen slightly. And the main reason for the proposed tuition hike is state funding.

Tuition for out-of-state students will increase $13.50, to $216 per credit hour. Campbell says an increased rate has not been set for students from nearby Illinois counties.

We've had one of the most competitive tuition rates in the state for years, usually the lowest. We want to make sure higher education is affordable for everyone.

The Eastern Iowa Community Colleges board of trustees will meet in Clinton tonight.
