This week’s Blinn College trustees meeting included a preliminary look at next year’s budget and tuition and fee schedules.
Chief financial officer Richard Cervantes is proposing an end to the 25 dollar per course technology fee for only online students and charging all students 18 dollars a course.
“Reason why we are doing that, it is the one thing we see out of COVID, that both faculty and students, will benefit from as we continue the use of this technology. Offering the capability to test virtually, or take the class, or be tested virtually,” said Cervantes.
Blinn trustees are expected to take final action next month on raising tuition two dollars a credit hour for Washington County students and three dollars more for Brazos County and other Texas students. General fees would increase three dollars a credit hour.
