At its March 25 meeting, the Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees approved new tuition rates effective for the 2014-2015 year. In approving the new rates, the Board of Trustees voted to increase credit hour rates for Washtenaw County residents, those who work in the County, and those who own property in the County from $91 to $93 per credit hour – an increase of 2.25 percent.

To ease the transition for current and prospective WCC students, the Trustees unanimously voted to allow those who register and make payment arrangements by July 31, 2014 – for the Fall 2014 semester – to receive the 2013-14 tuition rate of $91 per credit hour.

In addition, there will be no change to the schedule of student fees for items like repeating a course, submitting a delinquent payment, and other related fees as currently published. The Board also noted that the Emeritus Scholarship program for students 65 and older would remain in place.

“It is our goal to continuously balance our mission to keep Washtenaw Community College an affordable higher education option for our students while ensuring the highest possible standards in academic excellence, facilities and equipment that enhance the learning experience, and enrichment activities that our students and the communities we serve can enjoy,” said Dr. Bellanca.  “This modest increase will allow us to continue our efforts and to serve our students with distinction each and every day.”
