Tuition increases $7 per hour

MCCC’s Board of Trustees approved a $7 tuition rate increase Monday night for students who live in Monroe County.

Beginning Fall semester, students will  pay $84 per contact hour, compared to the $77 this school year.

Larger tuition increases were approved for students from outside Monroe County. Michigan residents who live outside of Monroe County will pay $144, up from $132.

Out-of-state students will pay $160, up from of $147.

The student technology fee also was increased, from $6 to $10 per billable contact hour.

With a full course load of 30 credit hours, the average in-district student will pay about $330 more a year.  That will increase MCCC tuition to about $2,880 per year for a typical student, which also includes the $30 registration fee assessed per semester.

Any specific course or lab fees would be extra.
