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.
