BEATRICE – Tuition will go up two-dollars per quarter credit hour for Southeast Community College students, this coming fall.
The SCC Board meeting in Beatrice Tuesday, approved the new rate which puts tuition and fees per credit hour, at $69.50.
SCC President Dr. Paul Illich says the new rate is projected to raise additional revenue for the college, of about $600,000. Though not yet finalized, SCC expects a state aid reduction of about one percent this coming year.
:24 “three percent”
Although other community colleges haven’t finalized their tuition rates for the next academic year, Illich expects SCC will be at the midpoint or slightly lower than the other five community colleges, on the tuition scale. SCC has a much lower student fee structure than the other two-year schools. On a semester basis, an Southeast student will pay about $3,127 for 30 semester hours. Southeast will transition from a quarter system to semesters, in 2019 and 2020.
The SCC Board also approved new room and board rates. The rate at the Beatrice Campus will increase about $50 per quarter, with about a $15 increase at the Milford Campus.
In other action Tuesday, the college board approved the bid of Connor Roofing, of York, to install a new roof on the Welsh Center at the Milford Campus. The bid totaled $199,000.
