Tuition at Central Lakes College and other MnSCU institutions will remain the same for the next two years. The tuition freeze will help Central Lakes College students continue to earn affordable degrees while keeping college debt levels as low as possible.
The Board of Trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) earlier this month approved an operating budget for fiscal 2014 that freezes undergraduate tuition at fiscal 2013 levels. This is the first of a two-year tuition freeze made possible by a $78 million appropriation by the state legislature during the 2013 session.
The Check & Connect Program and the Crow Wing County Transition Interagency Committee hosted a workshop on Thursday June, 13th at Central Lakes College for professionals working with students with Intellectual Disabilities who wish to go on to higher education. The day-long workshop was attended by 50 people ranging from high school teachers, social workers, college administrators, mental health professionals, and state vocational agencies.
