NICEVILLE — Northwest Florida State College announced Wednesday there will be no increase in tuition or fees for the 2018-19 school year.

The Northwest Florida State College's Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve the college's budget, keeping the tuition the same as last year, according to a press release from NWF State College.

Brian Pennington, Chairman for the Board of Trustees, said the college's leadership will continue to try to reduce the toll that expenses play in a student's desire to attend college.

“Northwest Florida State College remains committed to quality educational programs and services, and we want to help make education an achievable and affordable goal for all interested students,” Pennington said.

Students will also see financial relief from the elimination of parking and graduation fees, the press release said.

Northwest Florida State College also announced its enrollment numbers are continuing to increase. Enrollment increased by 1 percent for the fall 2017 semester and by 6 percent for the spring 2018 semester. 

The college also reported a record number of Kids on Campus participants with over 400 in the first session alone, the press release said.

Projections for fall enrollment are a 13 percent increase in applications.
