The Western Nebraska Community College board has voted to freeze tuition fees next year for virtually all categories of students.

College Acting President John Marrin said the school remains committed to meeting the needs of the region and that one of those needs is to provide a high quality education that is as affordable as possible for students. and their families.

Marrin adds that he is grateful to the Board of Governors for their support of this priority.

The tuition fee freeze doesn’t mean the WNCC won’t cost individual students more next year than it does this year.

This does not prevent course-specific fees, which often reflect material costs, from increasing, and the WNCC board has already approved increases for accommodation and board.

Meal plans are increasing 3% across the board, as are room rates in Pioneer Hall. The other campus residence at Scottsbluff, Conestoga, and Sidney Hall in Sidney will both see increases of 2%.

Registration for the Spring 2022 semester at WNCC is now open. More information on registration, financial aid, and scholarship resources are available online at wncc.edu/jointhepride or by calling 1-800-348-4435.
