In February, college admin- istration asked the board to in- crease tuition by $2 per credit hour and $4 per credit hour for the universal fee. These changes, approved by the board, would make 2013-14 academic year tuition $82 per credit hour for Oregon residents and $244 per credit hour for out-of-state and intemational students, plus a $14 per credit hour universal fee for all students. These tuition and fee in- creases were calculated based on the college budgeting its ex- penses for a $410 million allo- cation for the state's 17 commu- nity colleges by the Legislature. When it became apparent the state's appropriation would sig- r nificantly exceed the amount used in preparing the college's budget, college administration considered it prudent to look into reducing tuition. Based on the Legislature's community colleges allocation of $450 million, administration will be asking the board to re- duce tuition by $2 per credit hour. If approved, 2013-14 aca- demic year tuition at Chemeketa will be $80 per credit hour for Oregon residents and $242 per credit hour for out-of-state and international students, equal to the 2012-13 academic year rates. The universal fee will re- main at $14 per credit hour. If approved, the lower tuition will be effective starting with the summer 2013 term.
