BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

No higher costs.

That is the word from Bossier Parish Community College to students for the fall 2017 semester.

This is the second year there has been no tuition increase at the Bossier City school and other two-year colleges.

College administrators recommended to the Louisiana Community and Technical College System board in June that tuition rates remain unchanged. Board members unanimously agreed.

"Assuring that two-year community and technical colleges are accessible to as many students as possible is our primary responsibility," LCTCS President Monty Sullivan said. "As such, we must ensure that we provide a level of predictability when it comes to the cost of tuition."

BPCC will hold fall registration from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 9-10 at its campus at 6220 E. Texas St. in Bossier City.
