It now costs a little more to get a degree from Rock Valley College.

For the second time in a year, the RVC Board of Trustees approved a tuition increase.  It’s now $125 per credit hour. That’s up to a $15 increase.

The move does not affect the student activity or technology fees.

A college spokesman says, for a full-time student, this translates into an extra $450 per year.  RVC calls this a step to balancing the budget, which is about $1.5 million in the red.

This comes about a month after the school announced plans to lay off 28 faculty members.
