CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's Community College Commission has voted to raise tuition for in-state students by $4 per credit hour.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reported Saturday the hike means a total increase of about $96 per year for full-time students.

For in-state students, the price per credit hour goes from $79 to $83. The commission has raised in-state tuition by about $4 per credit hour for the last several academic years.

The commission voted on Friday. The tuition hike is expected to generate about $941,000.

The new rate goes into effect next fall.
