Tuition increases OK’d at JCCC
The cost to attend Johnson County Community College will increase next academic year.
At its monthly meeting March 24, the Johnson County Community College board of trustees approved an increase in the cost-per-credit-hour for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The cost will increase by $6 for Kansas residents and $16 for out-of-state residents.
Johnson County residents next year will pay $81 a credit hour (up from $75 this year, an 8 percent rise). Residents from other counties in Kansas will pay $96 a credit hour (up from $90 this year, or 6.67 percent more). Out-of-state students will pay $189 a credit hour next year (up 9 percent from $173).
For in-state students, this is $1 per credit hour more than was originally stated in the budget guidelines approved by the board in November 2010. The additional dollar will provide a specific funding source for classroom technology, board members decided.
