Tuition goes up two dollars in each category except dual credit.

The lowest for in-district tuition will be 76 dollars per credit hour. For a resident of Missouri, it will be 109 dollars per credit hour. High rates are noted for out of state; out-reach; on-line; and course by arrangement. Dual credit remains at 90 dollars per credit hour. No increase was recommended on student fees which remain at ten dollars for the room and board annual contract reflects a three percent increase based on a cost comparison with other Missouri community colleges, local supply and demand of rental properties, and a forecasted two to three percent increase in the consumer price index. Other factors are an anticipated increase in contractual services; a 85 dollar increase in the maximum Pell grant award, and consideration of state appropriations.

For the coming fall and next spring semester, NCMC Residence Hall occupancy will be 28-hundred 39 dollars for two students sharing a room and 45-hundred 41 dollars for a single occupant on campus. Also approved was the 12 meals a week plan costing 24-hundred 75 dollars and the 17 meals plan for 28-hundred ten dollars.

In a forthcoming change, nursing program tuition will be combined into one,across the board, rate for each nursing program and site. That tuitionwill be 235 dollars per credit hour beginning with the fall semester.

During discussion, College Trustee Don Dalrymple stated NCMC district tax-paying patrons enrolling in the nursing program should get a lower tuition than those residing outside of the college district. Upon the recommendation of North Central President Neil Nuttall, each of the three topics were combined into one motion. Trustees voted 4 to 1 to approve the rates as presented with Dalrymple opposed. In favor were John Holcomb, Diane Lowrey, ChrisHoffman, and Steve Busch. Rob Maloney was absent last evening.

The board hired Luetta Jacob of Lee's Summit as a part-time clinical instructor for the level two nursing program at Trenton.

Dean Kristen Alley told the board of procedures to refer students in need of counseling to the North Central Missouri Mental Health Center.
Reports were given by Chief Financial Officer Tyson Otto; FoundationDirector Teresa Cross and College President Neil Nuttall.
