Higher Tuition For Local Community College

There will be an increase in tuition next year for Rockland Community College Students. County Executive Scott Vanderhoef and County Legislators have backed a spending plan that increases tuition Seventy-five dollars per semester. This rise is due in part to a decrease in expected enrollment. Students taking twelve credits per semester will have their tuition raised One Hundred and Fifty dollars for the academic year. The budget was approved by the legislators and the college’s board of trustees on Tuesday after being vetted by the budget and finance committee. Rockland County’s contribution to the budget will be the same as last year’s, 16.4 million dollars and is seeking 16.74 million from the state.
