BC3 trustees approve budget with tuition hike

Butler County Community College trustees approved a $26.6 million budget for the next school year Wednesday afternoon, which includes a small tuition hike.
They approved a $3 per credit increase for in-county students taking fewer than 12 or more than 17 credits, making the new cost $96 per credit. Butler County students taking 12 to 17 credits will be charged a flat rate of $1,440.
The board also increased tuition for out-of-county and out-of-state students.
Also, because the number of credits students take at the school is down about 10 percent from this time last year, the budget reflected a decrease in credit revenue, from $11.3 million to $10.7 million.
