LCC Board Approves Small Tuition Increase for 2021-22

Lane Community College

Lane Community College’s Board of Education approved tuition rates for the 2021-22 academic year at its Wednesday meeting. The overall cost to most students won’t increase from what they paid in 2020-21, aside from a possible emergency fee in the event state funding isn’t enough.

This year, resident students are paying $126 per credit hour. This breaks down to $121 in tuition, plus a $5 emergency fee that was instituted last summer due to the economic impact of the pandemic. That’s set to be retired at the end of this academic year.


Next year, students will continue to pay $126 per credit hour, but for tuition only. This depends on the state funding Oregon’s 17 community colleges at $640.9 million or more.


The board approved a $10 fee, contingent on that funding.


The new academic year begins with summer term on June 21.
