Norwalk Community College now offers New York residents the same low in-state tuition rate paid by Connecticut residents.
The move is a new policy announced by the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) system extending in-state tuition for residents of neighboring states, including New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Fall classes begin August 29.
NCC hopes to attract more Empire State students who may have opted to attend Westchester Community College in Valhalla, NY, or go to a four-year college or university elsewhere.
New York residents planning on attending NCC full-time will save $8,552 annually with the new policy. NCC tuition is $4,276 for Connecticut residents versus $12,828 for out-of-state residents.
The cost of a three-credit course will drop from $1,707 (out-of-state) to $569 (in-state).
NCC offers great value and the choice of 60 Degree and Certificate programs, including the only Veterinary Technology degree program in the region.
Added benefits include proximity to major employment centers in Stamford, Greenwich and Norwalk. New York residents who work in lower Fairfield County will find NCC close to work and home.
NCC is one of seven Connecticut public colleges and universities to now offer the in-state tuition program to residents of neighboring states.
The new policy began as a pilot program at Asnuntuck Community College in Connecticut, located a few miles from the Massachusetts border. It has been expanded to Norwalk Community College, Housatonic Community College, Quinnebaug Valley Community College, Three Rivers Community College, Northwestern Community College, and Western Connecticut State University.
