Tuition Increasing At Louisiana Community Colleges

LAFAYETTE, LA (AP) — Louisiana community college students will pay 10 percent more in tuition this fall, but won't immediately pay additional fee increases that were permitted under recent legislative action.

         Bryan Glatter, vice chancellor of administration and finance at South Louisiana Community College, says the Louisiana Community and Technical College System on June 30 approved a 10 percent tuition increase starting in the fall. The increase was permitted under the GRAD Act, passed in 2010, which permits campuses to raise tuition if they meet certain goals.

         Glatter tells The Advertiser’s Ken Stickney all schools in the system raised their tuition by the same 10 percent, which he said brought their tuition into line with other two-year schools in the Southeast.

         That will increase tuition for full-time students from $1,489.78 a semester to about $1,652.
