In a time where many colleges and universities are raising tuition prices, to a point where some students are being priced out of higher education, Kansas City Kansas Community College is either maintaining or in some cases decreasing tuition rates to retain and attract new students.

In a time where many colleges and universities are raising tuition prices, to a point where some students are being priced out of higher education, Kansas City Kansas Community College is either maintaining or in some cases decreasing tuition rates to retain and attract new students.

The KCKCC Board of Trustees approved new tuition rates during its March 20 meeting. These tuition rates are in effect for the Fall 2018 semester.

“We wanted to take a strategic approach that included reaching out to students and parents in our own community, while also appealing to other student groups that afford the college additional potential growth opportunities,” said Dr. Jacqueline Vietti, President of KCKCC. “It also was important to recognize the support of our taxpayers in Wyandotte County.”

The new tuition rates, effective Fall 2018, are:

·         Wyandotte County: $82

·         High School: $80

·         In-State: $88

·         KC Metro: $113

·         Out of State: $195

·         International: $195

The KC Metro Rate is a special tuition rate for residents of Jackson, Johnson, Platte, Clay and Cass counties in Missouri.

The greatest decrease is for out-of-state and international students, which sees a drop of $51 per credit hour. In addition, Wyandotte County students will see a decrease of $4 per credit hour. In-state tuition as well as the KC Metro rate will see a slight increase of $2 per credit hour.

“This provides an option for us to remain competitive in this market of educating our students, while also giving a value to our Wyandotte County residents,” said Board of Trustees member Tyrone Garner during the March board meeting. “This will allow us to become a better value when you look at the cost and quality of the education you can get here at KCKCC.”

In addition to the new tuition rates, the board of trustees approved a restructuring to the current student fees. While the total fees will remain at $22 per credit hour, the original technology fee of $3.50 will be reallocated to Student Activities and Board Scholarships. The current $7 per credit hour technology fee will remain as part of the total fees.
