The Southeast Community
College Board of Governors approved a $3 per credit hour increase in the
Facility Fee for the 2021-2022 academic year, but held tuition at its current
rate during its regular monthly meeting in December. The motion was unanimous.
The rates established by the
Board will take effect for the 2021 Fall Semester starting in August. Nebraska
residents will pay $102 per credit hour in tuition and $12 per credit hour in
fees for a total of $114 per credit hour. Non-resident rates also increased $3
in fees, meaning those students will pay $123 per credit hour in tuition and
$12 per credit hour in fees for a total of $135 per credit hour. Non-resident
rates also take effect for the 2021 Fall Semester.
The additional $3 in fees will
mean resident students will pay $3,420 for 30 semester hours (one year), a 2.7%
increase over the current year.
The Board also set room and
board rates for 2021-2022. Those rates increased as much as 16% depending on
single or double occupancy.
