Tuition and Meal Plans Increase for Students at Hinds

Posted: Updated:

Students at Hinds Community College can expect to shell out more cash for tuition this fall.

This after trustees voted to increase tuition and meal plan costs.

Trustees voted on the increase Wednesday.

College officials say it's necessary, as the school is serving an unprecedented number of students while seeing its state funding cut.

Tuition for full-time students will be $980 per semester, which is an increase of $150.

Meantime, part-time students will pay $100 per credit hour.

That's an increase of $15 per credit hour.

Students living on campus in Raymond and Utica will also see their meal plans increase. The increase does not affect other community colleges.
