The Delta College Board of Trustees has set tuition and fee rates for the 2020-2021 academic year.
At its March 10 meeting, the board approved a $2 increase per contact hour for in-district, out-of-district and dual enrollment students. The technology and online course fee each increased by $1. The in-district tuition rate is now $117 per contact hour.
The decision to increase tuition by 2.18 percent is based on the rate of inflation, said Sarah DuFresne, vice president of finance.
“An increase is necessary to maintain the quality of instruction, which supports a positive student experience,” said DuFresne. “Consideration is always made to keep Delta an affordable higher education option for students in our region.”
About 82 percent of enrolled students come from Bay, Midland and Saginaw counties.
DuFresne added that Delta was the 10th lowest-costing community college of the 28
in Michigan last year.
