MCC has proposed $3 per credit hour tuition increases for fiscal years 2014 and 2015.

MCC has also proposed a $5 per credit hour student infrastructure fee to be implemented in FY 2015, i.e. starting with summer of 2015.

The specific recommendations and rationale can be found here: — scroll down the bookmarks to Board Reports #14-7 and #14-8.

I would like to hear from McHenry County residents and MCC students whether you support or oppose these proposals, or would like to see a different proposal.

Please post comments and questions here, or email them to me at Thank you.

MCC Trustee Seeks Guidance on Tuition Hike and Infrastructure Fee — 2 Comments

  1. $105/credit hour at a community college is preposterous. Of course, the Trustees should not raise it to $105. $103 is too high; $100 is too high. $90, $80, $70 per credit hour are all too high. Knock down those fat salaries, get rid of the Police Department, clean out administration and administrative overhead, and stop building a monument.

    And kill the $5/credit hour “infrastructure” fee.

    Stop monkeying around with special names for fees, charges, etc. and charge only a reasonable fee for the educational services provided.
