OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - At their monthly meeting March 24, the Johnson County Community College board of trustees approved an increase in the cost-per-credit-hour for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The cost will increase by $6 for Kansas residents and $16 for out-of-state residents.

Johnson County residents next year will pay $81 a credit hour (up from $75 this year). Residents from other counties in Kansas will pay $96 a credit hour (up from $90 this year). Out-of-state students will pay $189 a credit hour next year (up from $173).

For in-state students, this is $1 per credit hour more than was originally stated in the budget guidelines approved by the board in November 2010. The additional dollar will provide a specific funding source for classroom technology.
