MassBay Community College Board of Trustees approved a budget last week that will not require students to pay an increase in fees or tuition for the upcoming 2022-23 academic year. This is the third consecutive year MassBay has avoided charging students more for fees and tuition.
“At MassBay we believe the access to higher education is a matter of social justice,” said MassBay President David Podell. “We remain accessible by keeping the cost to attend as low as possible for students, by offering scholarships and financial aid counseling, and by ensuring the investment students make in us pays off in the end with well-paying, rewarding careers. Kudos to our financial management team for enabling us once again to keep tuition and fees at current levels.”
MassBay is the lowest-cost college option in MetroWest. A typical course for Massachusetts residents costs $224 per credit. Students often take classes at MassBay and then transfer their credits toward bachelor’s degree programs elsewhere, or they take their gained credentials, skills, and training and enter the local workforce.
“Maintaining the lowest possible cost for our students is part of our mission,” said Vice President for Administration and Finance Marcus Edward. “To offset rising costs of operations, we have invested wisely and redoubled our efforts to secure grants. The result has been an efficient, effective operation. At a time when the cost of attending college is prohibitive for many, our students continue to benefit from an excellent education and exceptional value.”
