On February 17, 2022, at its regularly scheduled board meeting, the JCCC Board of Trustees approved an approach that will raise tuition rates, starting with Fall 2022, based on a student’s residency status.

  • Tuition for Johnson County residents will increase $3 per credit hour, from $94 to $97.
  • Out-of-district resident tuition will increase $4 per credit hour, from $112 to $116.
  • Out-of-state and international student tuition will increase $5 per credit hour, from $223 to $228.
  • The Metro Rate will increase $5 per credit hour, from $138 to $143.

With these Fall 2022 tuition rates, JCCC will remain among the lowest cost per credit hour in the region. This is the first tuition and fee increase at JCCC in three years.

Analysis shows that approximately 75% of JCCC credit students are part time and take an average of seven credit hours a semester. The tuition increase would mean an additional $21-$35 in tuition per semester for these students.

Scholarship and Pell Grant awards to JCCC students have increased to provide more aid to JCCC students, which will offset this increase for many. In addition, since 2019, JCCC has put in place many support services to help students who face basic life challenges, which often present larger barriers to students along their educational journey than tuition and fees. These services include Cavalier Meal Share, a program that provides daily meals to qualified students; the Basic Needs Center, which provides students facing hardships with food, clothing, housing, and other support services; and increased availability of mental health counseling and referrals.
