A North Dakota lawmaker is calling NDSU's request for a tuition increase a big disappointment. Bob Skarpohl of Tioga wants to know why the 8.8% increase was never pointed out during the legislative session, and why it emerged right after the session. NDSU president Dean Brisciani says the House didn't reduce funding until the end of the session. NDSU was the only campus to ask for an increase bigger than 2.5% NDSU's student government supports the tuition increase, and the board of higher education approved it with a 5-to-3 vote. The average student is seeing a $500 tuition increase this fall.
