“At a time when many colleges are raising tuition to keep up with inflation, HJC is holding tuition steady in an effort to make a college education affordable for our students," said Dr. Kiko Suarez, chief academic officer at HJC.

According to Education Data Initiative, tuition at 2-year colleges increased by 11.4% in the last decade, before adjusting for inflation.

In 2023, HJC will be reducing the number of credit hours needed to earn an associate degree, in alignment with the recommendation of the accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission.

“These two steps will help students graduate in two years at an affordable rate,” said Suarez.
