Tuition to increase in RCC’s newly adopted budget

NEW CITY – Tuition at Rockland Community College this fall will increase $162 a year, or by 3.6 percent, under the terms of the college’s 2018-19 budget approved by the county legislature on Tuesday night.

Tuition for full-time students will be about $4,747, and that is “a bargain,” according to County Legislature Chairman Toney Earl.

The county’s contribution to the college’s spending plan increased by 1.76 percent, or about $300,000, for a total of $17.5 million. The total budget comes in at $66.8 million.

The remainder of the cost of the spending plan comes from tuition and the state.

“Rockland Community College continues to play an important role in helping everyone from newly-graduated high school students pursuing their associate’s degree to older adults seeking new career skills to obtain the education they need to succeed,” said Earl. “RCC continues to evolve its programming to meet the needs of the fast-moving world in which we now live, and frankly, it’s a bargain, making it more accessible than ever to those seeking to further their education.”
