JCC Increases Tuition for Field School

The AVP has learned that Jamestown Community College has recently increased tuition rates for the field school by 49%. This means that, with fees, JCC's 6 credits are $634.50 for in-state, and $1198.50 for out-of-state. We at the Allegheny Valley Project are extremely disappointed in JCC's decision to drastically increase tuition during the registration period, but we have no control over the internal affairs of that institution. I sincerely apologize to all of the prospective students who have made arrangements with the understanding that the tuition would be as previously advertised by JCC and by our organization. I hope that all of you will still be able to join us this season.

A breakdown of the new tuition rates:
          In-state: tuition $94 per credit hour X 6 = $564
                        fees $11.75 per credit hour X 6 = 70.50
                        total $634.50

          Out-of-state: tuition $188 per credit hour X 6 = 1128
                                fees 11.75 per credit hour X 6 = 70.50
                                total $1198.50
