On October 1, NHTI, Concord's Community College, formalized a tuition freeze for the current academic year. The college had promised a freeze based on the level of state funding in the budget, but could not formally adopt the rate until the state budget was enacted. NHTI had frozen tuition costs provisionally for the current semester.
In-state tuition will remain at $200/credit, or $600 for a 3-credit course. NHTI has not raised tuition since 2012. Last year the college reduced tuition by 5 percent thanks to tuition reduction support in the previous state budget.
“As a community college that provides students with a vibrant, full campus experience, it’s important to our students that we continue to offer this unique opportunity as an affordable alternative to the more expensive four-year colleges and universities,” says NHTI President Susan Dunton. “Keeping tuition in check will help us make a high-quality, comprehensive classroom and co-curricular education more accessible to students in our region.”
While students were away over the summer break, the Student Center received a brand new look! A new desk was made to accompany the Student Life team. The facility now has a new information area that will be used by Kaitlin Moody, our part-time Student Life Coordinator. There is also more space for the Student Life work study students to utilize.
We would like to give special thanks to Scot Drew and the whole Maintenance staff for their diligent work throughout summer vacation. The new desk looks phenomenal!

Wings of Knowledge is off and flying for the 2015-16 Academic Year, and things are looking up -- way up. R.P. Hale will present a program on The Mayan Sky and Calendar and what it means for us today.
R. P. Hale is an archaeoastronomer-historian, musician, calligrapher, chemist, and teacher. In 1999 he was named by the Smithsonian Institution as one of the top musical instrument makers in the United States for his harpsichords.
Just in time for NHTI's 50th Anniversary Gala, a special commemorative jigsaw puzzle has gone on display outside the Admissions Office in Sweeney Hall. The puzzle was commissioned by the PEER Committee, and features a composite of early and recent aerial views of campus. It was last seen when it was assembled for the first time by faculty and staff attending the 2015 Spring BBQ.
A big thank you to Tammy Nagel and John Maddock from Maintenance for hanging the puzzle. Check it out!
