(Quincy) - The John Wood Community College Board of Trustees Wednesday approved a tuition increase of $3 per credit hour for the 2012-13 school year.
Tuition for in-district students and online classes will increase to $123 per credit hour, not including a $10 per credit hour student services fee. The board approved a similar $3 per credit hour raise last year.
Finance committee members Jim Gay and Reggie Coleman said they arrived at the recommendation for the 2.5 percent raise after much discussion. Making sure the annual budget is balanced was a factor in their recommendation.
