Aims Community College lowers tuition for out-of-district studentsSubmitted on: 05-17-2006
Aims Community College has reduced tuition for students who live in Colorado outside of the college’s taxing district. The college’s Board of Trustees voted Tuesday to lower out-of-district tuition from $94 per credit hour to $75 per credit hour starting this summer semester, which begins May 22. Students can still register for summer classes, and a number of late-starting classes are offered throughout the summer. “The board’s decision to lower out-of-district rates shows a real concern for all our students and the educational opportunities available to them at an affordable cost,” said Aims President Marsi Liddell. “The opportunity presented itself for us to be competitive in pricing our out-of-district tuition.” Out-of-district students who have already paid for classes will be refunded the difference during the first week of June. Aims has campuses in Greeley, Loveland and Fort Lupton. The Aims taxing district includes all of Weld County except Brighton, Frederick, Firestone, Dacono and Erie. The college does not anticipate raising in-district tuition from the current rate of $50 per credit hour. “Our in-district rates are still the lowest on the Front Range,” Liddell said, adding that the college’s budget forecast for 2006-2007 calls for the in-district rate to remain at $50 per credit hour. Registration is already under way for summer classes and for fall semester, which begins Aug. 28.
