FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A Southwest tribal college is raising its tuition for the first time in a decade.
The Daily Times reported Friday that Dine College's Board of Regents approved a $55 tuition price last month for all degree and certificate programs.
The previous rate was $30 per credit hour and $120 per credit hour for the college's elementary education bachelor's degree program.
The new rate will take effect at the main Tsaile, Arizona campus and five others.
The school has campus in New Mexico in Shiprock and Crownpoint and three in Arizona.
College officials say the tuition hike is necessary to keep up with inflation and a loss of federal funding.
The Navajo Nation established Dine in 1968, becoming the first tribe to charter a college.
