WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Though it seems prices for almost everything has been heading north these days, tuition at MassBay Community College in Wellesley Hills will remain the same, after the school's Board of Trustees approved a budget that would allow for the plateaued cost for students.
School officials told WBZ NewsRadio in a statement that 2022-2023 will be the third consecutive school year where student tuition stays the same.
“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."
MassBay officials say the college is the lowest-cost option for higher education in MetroWest Boston, with a typical course for Massachusetts residents costing $224 per credit.
“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."
