Students at West Kentucky Community and Technical College will see an increase in their college bills next semester.
Vice President of Business Affairs Susan Graves says the college will see a 2 percent tuition increase, raising cost per credit hour from $144 to $147 to cover general operating costs.
An additional $4 fee per credit hour will go toward $7.5 million in bonds for the Paducah School of Art and Design Lower Town campus. That fee could increase up to $8 in two years.
Graves says the new campus in Lower Town will serve as an economic driver for the community.
