WCC Board approves fall semester tuition rates

Ann Arbor, Mich., March 28, 2017 – The Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees approved a one-percent tuition increase for on-campus in-district students at the March board meeting today. Tuition rate increases also were approved for all distance learning, out-district, out-state and international students. Fees were unaffected.

"Washtenaw Community College remains incredibly affordable and offers extremely competitive rates for both on-campus and online students," said WCC Dr. President Rose B. Bellanca. "For example, WCC has the third lowest in-district tuition rate per credit hour out of 28 comparable community colleges, and WCC's in-district tuition rate is more than 11% less than the average tuition rate of those colleges."

The tuition rate increase for on-campus in-district students is less than the rate of inflation, which was 2.7% for the 12 months ending February 2017.

The new tuition rates go into effect for Fall 2017 semester.

Learn How to Ride Motorcycles Safely This Summer at WCC

Admit it: When you walked by that 600-pound bike in the parking lot, you felt a little jealous. Someone else had sat on top of its shiny chrome, with every cell in their body idling at the same RPM as its engine. Unlike you, in your boxy SUV or fuel-friendly compact, they felt the freedom of the road that you never could, encased in metal and fiberglass. If what's holding you back from a two-wheel experience is your skill at doing it safely, WCC has a class for you.

Instructor’s Passions Range From Bikes to Bees

If there is a true Renaissance man on WCC’s campus it may well be motorcycle instructor and department chair Shawn Deron, 36. He is a self-described carpenter, plumber, mechanic, electrician, computer geek, philosopher, avid reader and learner, tool connoisseur, farmer, botanist, etymologist, photographer, entrepreneur, and teacher. But most of all he loves anything to do with speed and bees.

Get Help With Blackboard

The Blackboard used today at WCC isn’t a slab of slate hung on a classroom wall. Chalk won’t stick to it. You can’t make that nerve-numbing screech with your fingernails on it. But you can use it to pass notes to other students. You can check the status of assignments on it. And you can use it to mark your answers on a quiz or exam.

Testing Center Reduces Stress

There is no way around it—tests and stress go hand in hand. But what if you could take the test at a time of your choosing over a two-day period? And what if once you started it, you had as long as you needed to complete it instead of an hour or two during class? Would these things help? You bet.
