JCCC introduces metro tuition rate for Missouri residents
May 13, 2016
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Because the price of quality education is sometimes an obstacle for people wanting to go to college, the new Johnson County Community College metro tuition rate makes it more affordable for those who want to cross the state line for the flexible, convenient and accessible education opportunity provided by JCCC.
Beginning fall 2016, eligible Missouri residents can take any class on the credit schedule for the $135 per credit hour metro rate. Compared to $220 per credit hour for out-of-state students, JCCC is now even more affordable, allowing students to take more classes each semester to complete their degree sooner. For example, if a student residing in Missouri had previously taken 6 hours a semester, the savings from the metro rate would mean that student now can take 9 or so credit hours for the same tuition cost as he or she paid before.
Students can take advantage of more of what JCCC has to offer for less:
Flexibility — online, evening and weekend classes
Accessibility — conveniently located in Overland Park just minutes from State Line
Small Classes— average class size is less than 20
Residents in the 640 and 641 ZIP codes are eligible for the metro rate, which includes all of Jackson County, Missouri, and portions of other Missouri counties – including Cass, Clay, Platte, Ray and Lafayette.For more information, contact 913-469-3803 or visit the tuition web page.
