The Board of Higher Education voted Feb. 29 not to increase tuition at the University and state and community colleges.
This is the 10th year in a row that the baord has opted not to boost tuition levels.
As a result, tuition for state residents attending a community college will average $734 per year during the 2008-09 academic. Massachusetts residents attending a state college will pay an average of $957 per year and those enrolled in the University system will pay an average of $1,618 per year.
By law, tuition goes into the state’s General Fund while student fees are set by the governing boards of the individual institutions.
