Chemeketa per credit cost to remain level in 2016-17

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Chemeketa tuitionChemeketa Community College’s Board of Education voted unanimously at its Feb. 17 meeting to accept the administration’s recommendation to keep our per credit cost the same amount for the 2016-17 academic year.

$80 per credit tuition and $14 per credit universal fee made Chemeketa’s per credit cost of $94 the lowest among Oregon’s 17 community colleges this year. Other Oregon colleges have not yet determined their costs for next year.

President Julie Huckestein forecasted that this could be the last year Chemeketa is able to hold the line on costs.

“My guess is next year, we will have to ask for an increase,” she told the Board, citing the expectation that Oregon’s PERS liability will necessitate 3-5% across-the-board cut in state funding.
