Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC)  Academic Computer Labs (ACL) and libraries have launched a new print payment system that charges 10 cents per page for computer printouts effective this spring semester. Print Payment Center machines are located on both campuses enabling students to place funds on printing accounts. Before using a Print Payment Center machine, a student must set up an account at the library circulation desk to receive a card for permanent use.

New students who have not been issued TNCC ID cards and community members can create temporary printing accounts. As a convenience, no library visit is necessary for a 90-pass; payment center machines print 90-day passes at the time of use. Library officials advise temporary pass holders to only deposit the amount of money they plan to use in a 90-day period because unused funds cannot be refunded when the pass expires. Temporary users must also note that lost passes will result in loss of all money placed on the 90-day pass.

Community college tuition & fees increase less than half of comparable increases at public four-year universities

The State Board for Community Colleges, in a unanimous vote, set the 2009-2010 in-state tuition and mandatory fee rate at $92.70 per credit hour. As a result of the $6.55 per credit hour increase, a full-time, in-state student, taking a total of 30 credit hours, will pay an additional $196.50 for the academic year.

Board members say the increase is essential to serving the record-setting number of traditional students and laid-off workers who are turning to Virginia’s Community Colleges for an opportunity in this recession. More than 16,000 new students began attending a Virginia Community College over the last two years. Enrollment during the recently concluded spring semester was unusually high, up more than 7 percent. Indications are mounting that a similar increase will occur during the summer.
