Students who go to Central Oregon Community College may soon be feeling some of the impact of the recession: State revenue and property tax income is down, so the college officials will probably raise tuition. COCC spokesman Ron Paradis explains:  "Right now the tuition and fees total at COCC are the lowest in any Community College in Oregon and we're pleased with that of course, but as we look at the future, looking at different revenue options and the board will be considering tuition increase from $70 per credit to $76 per credit." Ron Paradis says State Funding Revenue is down about 60%. If approved, the tuition hike will take effect summer term.
