Community college raising tuition next fall
Published: May 6,2013
MCCOMB — Copiah-Lincoln Community College will increase tuition beginning with classes this fall.
The Daily Leader reports the Copiah-Lincoln board approved the increases this past week in a $25 million budget.
President Ronnie Nettles says fulltime tuition will increase $125 per semester to $1,100.
Nettles says out of state fees are increasing from $900 to $1,000 per semester. He says few students will be impacted by that change.
Next year’s budget also brings an increase for part-time students that Nettles describes as negligible.
State funding is providing about $9 million for the two-year school. The remainder comes from students’ fees and other sources, such as federal funds.
