Trustees approve 5.5 percent tuition increase

Tuition will increase by 5.5 percent beginning with the fall 2013 semester.

The Pulaski Technical College Board of Trustees unanimously approved the increase during a regular meeting Monday and also approved changes to some fees. Tuition will increase $5 per credit hour, from $90 to $95. In addition, the board approved the following changes:

  • A new Technology Fee of $7 per credit hour. The fee will generate about $1.8 million to help maintain and expand student computer labs and facilities, academic technologies, web-based services and campuswide technology projects.
  • A new Library Fee of $10 per semester to cover the cost of maintaining hardware and software, student printing consumables (toner and paper), subscription costs for journals, databases, and other enrichment resources.
  • The Special Course Fee will increase from $15 to $30 per course.
  • The fee to take the COMPASS test will increase from $10 to $20, and the cost to retake the test will increase from $5 to $10. However, as an incentive to get students to prepare before taking the assessment, the college will waive the test fee for first-time students who complete a COMPASS preparation program either online or at one of the college's sites.
