Wyoming Community College Panel Increases Tution

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Community College Commission has approved a $4 per credit hour tuition increase for resident students.

But the commission on Tuesday rejected charging for credits a student takes over the full-time 12 credit hours a semester.

The new tuition rates take effect in the 2012-13 school year. Full-time students from Wyoming will see their tuition cost rise from $1,704 to $1,800. Tuition rates for out-of-state students, who pay more than resident students, will also pay more.

It is the second tuition increase in as many years for students attending Wyoming’s two-year colleges.

Opponents of the increase argued it would burden students financially, but supporters said it was a reasonable price for a quality product.
