The Waubonsee Community College Board of Trustees has voted to keep tuition rates steady for the next academic year.

The cost per credit hour will remain at $132 and the student fee rate will stick at $8.

A news release from the college says that its rates continue to be below the state average for community colleges, reflecting the board of trustee's ongoing efforts to keep the school affordable.

The college plans to reduce the property tax burden on district residents and further support students with scholarship programs.
