AUSTIN, MN — College students are getting some good news in Minnesota.
Leaders with State Colleges and Universities are freezing tuition for 2014.
It’s part of the budget passed last week.
That includes tuition at Riverland Community College in Austin, where they hope students will use this as an opportunity.
“We hope with the tuition freeze that we will be able to get more students through faster and off to work which will be pretty important,” Riverland Community College Interim President Kent Hanson said. “So, were pretty excited about it.”
He adds this is the first time he’s seen a tuition freeze in years.
