Good News for Westchester Community College Students

Dr. Belinda S. Miles, president of Westchester Community College

For the fifth consecutive year, tuition for nearly 13,000 students at Westchester Community College (WCC) will not increase under a proposed budget that was submitted by County Executive Robert P. Astorino to the Board of Legislators on Friday.

“We propose a budget that prioritizes an affordable and high quality education for Westchester Community College’s students and families,” said Dr. Belinda S. Miles, president of Westchester Community College. “No tuition increases for five years is notable within New York State and a testament to our collaborative partnership with Westchester County leadership.”

The Board of Legislators is scheduled to vote on the budget on August 7. The college’s fiscal year begins on September 1.
