No Tuition Hike For CCAC Students from Allegheny County

The Board of Trustees of the Community College of Allegheny County has approved a $116 million budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year. The spending plan includes no tuition increase for the second straight year for Allegheny County residents. CCAC President Alex Johnson says in-county tuition will remain at $82.25 per credit.....
“CCAC recognizes that although economic indicators may be improving, the reality is still difficult financial times for many Allegheny County residents. We are able to hold in-county tuition steady thanks to a lean budget and strong support from County Executive Dan Onorato and the members of Allegheny County Council.”
The county committed to a 2% increase in its appropriation for the college. However, state support for community colleges was cut slightly this past year.
While in-county tuition will hold steady, the budget includes an $11 per credit increase in $139 per credit....for residents of Pennsylvania counties without a community college.
