(DALLAS) — Members of the Dallas County Community College District board of trustees approved revisions to tuition rates during their June meeting by eliminating registration fees and increasing tuition. The new rates begin this fall.
The current tuition rate is $23 per credit hour for in-county residents; $43 per credit hour for out-of-county residents; and $73 per credit hour (with a $200 minimum) for out-of-state/out-of-country residents. The new tuition rate will increase $3 per credit hour and will be $26, $46 and $76, respectively. The student registration fee, music fee, laboratory fees and distance learning registration fee all were eliminated.
The new tuition rate positions DCCCD as the 44th lowest cost institution when the district is compared to other Texas community colleges, using 12 credit hours that include one laboratory course, as a measurement.
“The new tuition rates will generate equivalent levels of revenues, in addition to providing approximately $1.1 million in additional revenues, based on current enrollment levels and compared to current tuition and fee collections,” said Bob Brown, vice chancellor for business affairs. Additional monies will be used for academic and training programs, as well as other needs, so that DCCCD can continue to offer quality classes and education to its students and the community.
Trustees also learned that DCCCD colleges received several grants:
