Collin College trustees voted last week to raise student tuition $4 per credit hour starting with the fall semester, but prices will remain less than the cost at other area community colleges and universities.
The $4 per hour tuition increase is for Texas residents. Students from out of Texas, and out of the United States, will see an increase of $5 per hour.
New tuition prices will be $52 per hour for in-district residents, $98 per hour for out-of-district students and $165 per hour for out-of-state and foreign students. A student activity fee of $2 per credit hour is assessed all students.
In comparison, in-district tuition is $59 at Dallas Community College, $85 at Grayson College, $91 at North Central Texas College and $64 at Tarrant Community College.
The tuition increase is expected to generate approximately $2.7 million in additional revenue during fiscal year 2019-20, the college reported.
In addition to the tuition increase, the board of trustees approved a $5 increase in biology, chemistry and physics lab fees, to $15. Culinary and pastry lab fees will rise to $75, an increase of $25.
