Board approves tuition, fee increase starting this fall

   During its March 26 meeting, board of trustees for Northeast Texas Community College approved a flat two-dollar per credit hour tuition increase and a two-dollar per credit hour general service fee increase for the 2019-2020 academic year. An in-district student taking a full 12-hour course load would see their tuition and standard fees raise from $1,157 in 2018-2019 to $1,205 in 2019-2020.

   “Our board has historically taken a conservative approach to tuition and fee increases by making small changes annually. This allows us to adjust for the rising cost of course delivery without burdening our students with large increases from one year to the next,” Dr. Ron Clinton, NTCC President, said.

   In personnel action, the board also recently approved Sebastian Barron as the new Director of Computer and Technical Services.
