North Idaho College recently announced that it plans to offer in-state tuition rates for summer classes to students who live outside the state of Idaho.
The North Idaho College Board of Trustees approved the measure at a meeting Dec. 14. The change takes effect summer session 2006.
“We are just falling in line with the trend started by other public colleges and universities to not charge out-of-state tuition in the summer,” said NIC Vice President for Student Services Bruce Gifford. “It makes it much more affordable for students that need to pick up an extra class and easier for community members who have not lived here for the full 12 months it takes to establish in-state residency to take a class or two in the summer.”
Students who live out of state will be charged the in-state, in-district rate in the summer. Normally, out-of-state tuition for full-time students (taking between eight and 18 credits per semester) is $3,215 compared to $939 for in-state residents. Now only one tuition rate will be applied in the summer for all students, the in-state, in-district rate of $939.
Summer tuition for part-time students will now be $122 for the first credit and $117 for each additional credit.
These rates only apply to summer session. Out-of-state rates will still be charged to out-of-state residents during Fall 2006 and Spring 2007 semesters.
Summer session at NIC starts June 5. Registration for summer classes begins April 17.
