The Central Oregon Community College Board has voted to increase tuition from $76 per credit to $82 as of this coming summer term, June 25th. COCC President Jim Middleton says they need the additional money to make up for dwindling state support and lower property tax revenues. “We're really funded in 3 areas: State funding, property taxes and tuition. The State had to cut 3%- 7% for next year. Local property taxes, another 1%.” Middleton says compared to the other community colleges in Oregon, COCC is still very competitive, coming in at the third lowest price in the state. COCC is earlier they held tuition steady for several years and now they are playing catch-up. The COCC Board met and approved the tuition hike on Tuesday night.
