Tri-C's Board of Trustees Approves New Tuition Rate
March 21, 2014
The Board of Trustees at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) today approved an increase in tuition and general/technology fees, raising the cost by $3.33 per credit hour beginning with Fall Semester 2014.
The new cost per credit hour – $104.54 – remains the lowest in Northeast Ohio and second-lowest in the state.
“We are committed to preserving a tuition rate that makes higher education as accessible as possible for our community,” said Jerry Kelsheimer, chairman of the Cuyahoga Community College Board of Trustees.
In addition to the change in cost per credit hour, the Board also approved a flat $10 increase in the Institutional Fee that students pay to partially offset rising maintenance, security and other operational costs throughout the College.
The combined adjustments will cost the typical Tri-C student approximately $40 per semester. That money will go toward addressing reductions in other sources of funding while maintaining standards of academic excellence.
In addition, Tri-C continues to use cost-containment measures to maximize every dollar in its budget for the benefit of students.
“The tuition increase and other actions will support the College’s expanding efforts on student success and completion, helping to ensure that all students have the tools and support they need to achieve their educational and career goals,” said Alex Johnson, Tri-C president.
