RCC tuition going up $150 per semester

Posted: Updated:

Rockland Community College students headed back to school this fall will be paying more.

Tuition is going up $150 for the fall semester. Full-time students will now have to pay nearly $2,000 per semester.

This is more than an 8 percent jump over the last school year, and school officials say the hike is partly due to a decrease in state aid.

RCC says despite the increase, tuition still remains the lowest in the area.
