Itawamba Community College will not increase tuition or fees for the 2010 fall semester.

“We realize with the unemployment rate and the economy, now more than ever, the college needs to make extra sacrifices to meet the needs of the people we serve,” ICC President Dr. David Cole said at a news conference this morning.

“By not increasing tuition and fees, Itawamba Community College can continue to make education more affordable to help families during these stressful economic times,” Cole said.

The cost of full-time (at least 12 credit hours) tuition at ICC is $800 per semester.
