At a time when the nation needs to capitalize on the natural talents of all of its young people, skyrocketing tuition and borrowing have become major barriers for young people wishing to get a college degree. Even though a college degree is worth every dime in the long run, the upfront costs are forbidding.
FARGO — North Dakota State University will make its case on Monday for an 8.8 percent tuition increase, the only state university to deviate from a 2.5 percent cap.
President Dean Bresciani told a subcommittee of the state Board of Higher Education Thursday that without the increase, NDSU would have to cut core academic programs.

As it’s currently written, a proposal to allow North Dakota residents at least 55 years old to take college classes for free should be defeated.
Under the proposal by Rep. Vicky Steiner, R-Dickinson, residents 55 and older could take college classes without paying tuition or fees and earn credit.

Two Grand Forks lawmakers have introduced a bill to the North Dakota Legislature that would freeze tuition at all universities in the state.
The bill, House Bill 1301, was introduced last week in the House by Rep. Corey Mock and Sen. Mac Schneider. Both are Democrats who represent District 42, which covers northern Grand Forks.
