MALTA — The Kishwaukee College Board of Trustees at its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, March 12, unanimously voted to increase tuition for the 2013-14 academic year by $12 per credit hour. The cost per credit hour, beginning with the Summer 2013 semester will be $101. The Board also voted to increase technology fees by $1 per credit hour and implement variable tuition for the Nursing program.
The college has always approached the issue of tuition increases as conservatively as possible. Last year, the college was one of only two community colleges in Illinois who did not raise tuition. The 2012-2013 academic year tuition rate at Kishwaukee College was $89 plus $11 in fees for a total of $100 per credit hour. That ranks the college in the lowest third in tuition and fee rates in the state. The average rate among Illinois community colleges for 2012/2013 was $107.89.
