WCC Tuition Going Up; Increase Kept to a Minimum

This fall Washtenaw Community College students will pay a little more for their credit classes. The Board of Trustees voted March 24 to increase tuition by $3 per credit hour. That means a full-time student taking 12 credit hours will pay $36 more per semester than last year.

The increase is essential to serve the record-setting number of traditional students and laid-off workers turning to WCC for career preparation and skill retraining in these tough economic times.

More than 3,500 new students enrolled at WCC in Fall 2008, a 10 percent increase over the previous year. The overall head count for Winter 2009 increased 7 percent as of January 23, and the upward trend is expected to continue for Fall 2009.

The ability to keep tuition increases at a minimum reflects the College’s ongoing efforts to contain costs and reduce expenses, while still maintaining the quality instruction and services Washtenaw County residents expect from WCC.
