Tuition at Erie Community College to increase by 3.5 percent - Jay Tokasz, Buffalo News

Tuition at Erie County Community College will increase to $4,900 in 2017-18 -- 3.5 percent more than the current tuition of $4,733. Trustees voted unanimously Thursday morning to approve a $110.8 million budget that includes a tuition hike for the seventh straight year. Tuition has grown by 43 percent since 2010, which is the last time that ECC students did not see a year-to-year tuition hike. "I don't think any of us take lightly the idea of increasing tuition," said Stephen Boyd, a trustee. "But we live in a world that we don't control the birth rates, and therefore we can only do so much with respect to controlling enrollment, which has so much much to do with our budget."
