Tuition To Remain Flat:
Tuition will remain flat at the College of DuPage for the next academic year. College board members voted 6-0 to keep tuition at $135 per credit hour for students who live in the district and $322 per credit hour for non-district students despite a projected $4 million dollar budget shortfall for fiscal year 2018. Instead of raising tuition, officials plan to pay down the deficit with the projected $7 million dollars the school will have left over at the end of this fiscal year.
