East Central University increasing tuition

ADA, OK -- Some Texoma college students will have to dig a little deeper in their pockets to pay for school this year.

East Central University in Ada is raising tuition by 5.4 percent. That means an increase of about $8 dollars per credit hour.

Last year it cost undergraduates $155.11 per credit hour. This year it will cost $163.56.

Amy Ford, the Director of Communications, says ECU is still one of the lease expensive colleges in the state for a bachelor's degree.
