Connecticut Backs Off Steep Tuition HikeOctober 18, 2016 |

Officials of the state’s community colleges have backed off plans to seek a steep tuition and fee hike for thousands of students starting next semester – and instead plan to study the idea.
Under a proposal released last week by the administration of the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities, tuition and fees would have increased for students who take more than 12 credit hours. Currently, community college students who pay full-time tuition can take up to 18 credit hours.
