BLACKWOOD, N.J. — Education at Camden County College has just become more affordable thanks to the Federal CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.
The Camden County College Board of Trustees has approved a tuition rate of $99 per credit for the Spring 2022 Semester., down from $110 per credit. The $99 rate is the lowest in the region and applies to in-county and out-of-county students taking courses in-person and online. The ability of institutional Federal CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding has made it possible for CCC to offer this one-time benefit to students.
Registration for the Spring 2022 Semester opens on October 18, 2021. The college is offering a full schedule of in-person and online courses this spring, including for-credit lectures, workforce development, and noncredit courses. Camden County College offers the largest selection of degree and certificate programs, most available transfer options, and the lowest tuition in the region. Students are encouraged to register early for the best selection.
“If the cost of higher education is the reason you haven’t pursued your academic goals, we want to remove that barrier. Our goal for our students is zero college debt, and it can be done,” CCC President Donald A. Borden said. “The best part is that this rate applies to in-person and online courses. The choice is yours.”
The availability of CARES III Grants can also provide help paying for education-related expenses such as food, housing, and technology needs, as well as or in addition to childcare, medical, and other qualifying expenditures.
The $99 per credit rate excludes Real Estate (FIN) and Center for Cultural Engagement (IDY) coursework. International student tuition is adjusted to $172 per credit.
