City College Raises Tuition for Out-of-State and International Students


Santa Barbara City College passed a resolution on 1/23 that will increase out-of-state and international students’ tuition by $14 per unit in fall 2014, increasing the total cost for non-California residents to $271 per unit and generating an estimated $700,000 per year for the school. California residents at all of the 112 community colleges pay $46 per unit (per state law). Spring semester began on 1/27, and enrollment numbers indicate there are roughly 17,500 credit students enrolled; 15,000 students are California residents; 900 students are out-of-state students; and 1,400 students have international status.
