Heartland Community College decided to raise tuition starting this summer semester.
The increase has been an additional $5 per credit hour. Students taking 15 credit hours will now be paying $75 more than previously.
“We look at all types of factors related to how can we manage the costs as best as possible and how we can reduce the costs for students whenever possible. We do that for all educational costs not just the tuition increase but everything we do, textbooks as well,” said Keith Cornille, HCC President.
The president also said they are doing everything they can to manage the costs of education for students.
