MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Blue Ridge Community and Technical College's governing board on Wednesday approved pay raises for full-time faculty and its president and recommended a 4.75 percent increase in tuition for most students.

The tuition increase still must be approved by the West Virginia Council for Community and Technical College Education, officials said.

As proposed, student fees for full-time enrolled state residents would increase by $58 to $1,530 per semester. Nonresidents, with the exception of students who reside in Frederick and Clarke counties in Virginia and in Washington and Frederick counties in Maryland, would increase by $168 to $4,427 per semester, officials said.

Full-time students from the four counties in Maryland and Virginia, including the independent city of Winchester, Va., would pay $3,000 per semester if the college's new "metro" tuition and fee schedule is approved.

Leslie C. See, the college's director of enrollment management, said the reduced fees charged to the out-of-state students in neighboring counties could be offset by the enrollment of 14 additional students.

In other action, the board approved a 3.5 percent pay increase for full-time faculty that is subject to pay-grade limitations. The board also voted to extend the school's contract with college president Peter Checkovich and gave him a 5 percent pay increase. Checkovich currently is paid $124,920.
