Maricopa County colleges raise tuition 7%

It will cost more to attend a community college in Maricopa County. The college district board has approved a 7 percent tuition increase.

That means credit hours rise from $71 to $76.

The Arizona Republic reports the governing board approved the tuition increase Tuesday evening by a 4-1 vote. The district says it was forced to charge more for classes because of deep cuts in state funding.

The higher tuition is expected to bring in $12.5 million to the district.
