A new state law will lower tuitions for Hagerstown Community College students who live outside Washington County, President Norman Shea said Friday. The law reduces the rate of tuition community colleges must charge out-of-state and out-of-county students, he said. The law, and the new rates, take effect July 1, he said. Out-of-state enrollment has dropped from 650 students to 448 in three years, Shea said. That was because under existing law the college could not reduce tuition for those students and remain competitive, he said.

Freshmen entering Shepherd University for the first time this fall will only need 120 credit hours to graduate instead of the 128 currently required, making the college the statewide leader in putting the new policy in effect. "This might sound little, but it's really big news. It represents about two years work by our faculty," Shepherd President Suzanne Shipley said. Not only will the reduction in credit hours make it quicker and less expensive to earn a bachelor's degree, more importantly it will benefit students academically, Shipley said.
