New Hampshire’s community college students could pay 4-to-5 percent more in tuition each of the next two years if Gov. John Lynch’s budget is adopted as is.
That would raise the cost per credit from $175 to $190 by the second year.
Paul Holloway, chairman of the community college system’s board, told the House Finance Committee yesterday that Lynch’s budget is $13.6 million less than was requested.
Holloway said the system has identified $8 million in cuts and would make up the balance with tuition hikes.
