WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- For the 5th consecutive year, tuition at Westchester Community College will remain the same.

The Board of Legislators unanimously approved County Executive Rob Astorino's budget, which keeps tuition flat for the 13,000 students.

“WCC is where so many students go for a quality and affordable education so that they can make a better life for themselves and their families," Astorino said. "We must find ways to keep public education affordable and a tuition increase would hurt far too many of WCC’s students.”

The $122 million operating budget for the 2017-2018 school year includes a $29.9 million sponsor contribution from the county, an increase of $67,000 over last year and $500,000 from the year before.

Additionally, WCC’s capital budget includes $2.16 million for four projects, which include technology upgrades at several locations on-and-off-campus along with site improvements throughout campus and a proposal to assess planning and infrastructure needs going forward.
