Community College Commission Won’t Raise Tuition–For Now
Written by jordanmckamey on October 28, 2019
The Wyoming Community College Commission isn’t raising tuition again, for now.
Commissioners decided Thursday in Gillette to see how a tuition increase from $94 to $95 per credit hour will work out during the current school year.
The commission approved the increase in 2018 and set a goal for tuition to equal 23% to 28% of college revenue each year.
The Gillette News-Record reports the increase puts tuition at about 21% of revenue.
Commission staff recommended waiting on any new increase and waiting to see how tuition might be charged for new four-year degrees authorized by the Legislature.
Wyoming’s community college system consists of seven college districts.
