Snead State Community College here will see a tuition increase of almost 15 percent for its spring semester as a result of the 7 1/2 percent cut in state education money Gov. Bob Riley announced last month.
At its Oct. 22 meeting, the Alabama Board of Education approved a tuition increase for colleges to offset the cut.
At Snead, the tuition, with the addition of fees that did not increase, will go from $94 to $108 per credit hour, a 14.9 percent jump.
Dr. Robert Exley, president of Snead State, said he supported the increase along with other presidents in the state's community college system.
