LCCC Board Approves Tuition Freeze for Two Academic Years

{mosimage}Tuition at Lorain County Community College will remain at the current rate for the next two academic years. The Lorain County Community College’s Board of Trustees Thursday approved a tuition freeze for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 academic years in response to the state’s higher education budget.

The freeze holds the cost per credit hour to $92.30 (including fees) for Lorain County residents. This equates to $1,107.60 for tuition and fees per semester and $2,215.20 annually for Lorain County residents taking classes full-time. LCCC’s innovative blanket tuition program gives students the opportunity to take up to 18 credit hours and pay only for 13 credit hours, or $1,199.90 each semester.

Tuition at LCCC is the best value in Ohio and is about one-quarter of tuition rates at public universities in Ohio. It remains the second lowest in the state. The college has nearly 11,000 students enrolled, which represents a 50 percent increase since 2000. LCCC is among the top 15 fastest growing community colleges in the nation with college’s over 10,000 students, according to Community College Week.

“LCCC and its University Partnership are the access point to higher education for thousands of Lorain County residents each year,” said LCCC President Dr. Roy A. Church. “This combination creates the best value and opportunity for those looking to transfer from LCCC as well as adults seeking to continue their education while working. Keeping tuition affordable in a critical factor to accessibility.”
