Jamestown Community College has found it necessary to increase their discount tuition rate by around 5%. While this is still a wonderful deal, it is unfortunate that it was applied during an active enrollment period. The tuition was advertised on their website (and ours) at $354 for in-state and $708 for out-of-state. Those figures are now $372 for in-state and $744 for out-of-state. An AVP donor has agreed to reimburse all field school students the cost of the increased fees ($18 for in-state and $32 for out-of-state students). We regret any inconvenience this change may have caused. We hope to see many students and volunteers this year!
