PRCC board decides to not raise tuition
Published: June 15,2011
POPLARVILLE — The Board of Trustees has approved a $32.4 million budget that does not raise tuition for students at Pearl River Community College.
Full-time, in-state students at PRCC will continue to pay $1,000 per semester in tuition.
PRCC raised tuition in 2008 and 2010.
The Hattiesburg American reports fall semester enrollment in 2010 set a record of 5,469, a 5.5 percent increase over fall 2009. Spring enrollment, historically less than fall, topped out at 4,908 in 2011, a 2.5 percent increase over the previous spring.
Although tuition will not increase, students who live in campus residence halls will face a $100 per semester increase in room and board.
Roger Knight, dean of business services, said yesterday the increase is due to rising food and supply costs.
