CCC board votes for tuition increase

During the Clackamas Community College Board meeting last Wednesday, March 11, a vote was on the table to increase tuition for the 2015-16 school year by $3 per credit. This vote was “actively discussed” during the previous month’s Board meeting according to Amanda Coffey, English faculty member in an email to fellow CCC faculty. After deliberation and discussion of the state budget, the CCC Board approved the tuition increase. The current cost per credit is $84, so the approval will make the cost $87 per credit starting next fall.
