Colleges hike room and board while holding tuition steady.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) -- Four Wyoming community colleges have increased room and board rates for 2010-11.

Students living on campus at Casper College will see about a 20 percent increase.

The increase at Northwest College is 9 percent, at Eastern Wyoming College 3.8 percent, and at Central Wyoming College 10 percent.

Laramie County and Western Wyoming community colleges, and the Northern Wyoming Community College District, have not yet set rates.

The Wyoming Community College Commission had considered raising tuition but Gov. Dave Freudenthal promised federal stimulus funds for the state's colleges as long as they didn't increase tuition or fees for one year.
