According to, the college is pushing a proposal for reduced tuition to counter declining enrollment. The proposal would affect students from the federally defined Appalachian region, which stretches from New York to Alabama and includes all or parts of 13 states.

Chancellor Donna Henry hopes the proposal would bring in about 100 additional students.
