The Alvin Community College Board of Regents unanimously approved adjustments to tuition and fees during their meeting on February 23.
The new plan will take effect in Fall 2023 and includes an increase in tuition as well as adjustment to student fees related to specific courses. This is the first adjustment to the ACC tuition rate prior to the onset of the COVID pandemic in 2020. Tuition rates are usually considered for adjustment every two years.
The adjustment includes a $4 increase per credit hour for students who live in the district and an $8 increase for students who live outside the district. The security fee and technology fee were also increased to $8 each to $38 and $98 respectively.
In other action, regents received a report on enrollment for the Spring semester. The report showed a projected 6.6 percent increase in contact hours and a 7 percent increase in enrollment compared to Spring 2022.
