Mount Marty won't increase tuition next year

YANKTON (AP) — Mount Marty College in southeast South Dakota will not raise tuition and fees for the next academic year.

The board of trustees of the liberal arts school announced the tuition freeze on Thursday.

Joseph Benoit is the president of Mount Marty College. He says the board's decision will allow the school to continue to be among the most affordable private colleges in the nation.
