One KOTA Territory college is increasing it's tuition.
Western Dakota Tech will increase it's tuition by seven dollars a credit hour, or four percent, starting this fall.
Marketing Director Steve Buchholz, says the decision to increase tuition is a difficult one, but necessary to keep the institution running as efficiently as possible.
He says every year they look at the budget and the current tuition rates to decide if an increase is necessary.
WDT's total tuition and fees will be $183 per credit hour, well below the national average of $632.
