No tuition hike at Maricopa community colleges

MESA – The Maricopa County Community College District governing board has decided against raising tuition for the 2010-11 school year.

The board on the evening of March 23 followed the administration’s recommendation to keep the tuition and fee rate at the current rate of $71 per credit hour. But it did approve changes to the individual class fee schedules – some cuts, some new fees and some increased fees.

Enrollment at the county’s 10 community colleges has jumped about 11 percent this spring from last spring. More than 130,000 students are enrolled in classes at the colleges, which receive just 8 percent of their funding from the state. The rest comes from property taxes and tuition.
