ADAMS COUNTY — Copiah-Lincoln Community College has asked Adams County for more money.
Co-Lin received $79,395 in 2009-1010 from Adams County.
The Natchez Democrat reports that Co-Lin president Ronald Nettles asked supervisors for an $8,000 increase.
Nettles says the increase is needed because federal stimulus funds will not make up for reduction in state support of about $1.6 million.
He says tuition this fall will increase to $1,025 a semester, up from $900.
Co-Lin also receives funding from Lincoln, Simpson, Copiah, Jefferson, Lawrence and Franklin counties.
