Herkimer College holds in-state tuition rate steady


HERKIMER — Herkimer College announced in-state tuition and fee rates for the 2022-23 academic year will remain the same. Tuition for full-time, in-state students is $2,558 per semester and part-time, in-state tuition is $189 per credit hour.

According to College President Cathleen McColgin, Ph.D., the decision to freeze in-state tuition and fees at the current levels reflects the College’s commitment to maintaining an affordable and accessible higher education for all learners. “We acknowledge the continuing financial hardships faced by many students and their families due to the coronavirus pandemic and exacerbated by the current inflationary situation,” said McColgin.

In another effort to increase affordability, Herkimer College has developed BookMarket in collaboration with Barnes & Noble College. BookMarket is a course-material delivery program that lowers the cost of materials and ensures students have access to all their required textbooks on or before the first day of class. The program will be available for the Fall 2022 semester.

“Programs like BookMarket or Commit2Complete, which provides $1,000 for on-campus housing to students to who pledge to obtain their degree in two years or less, exemplifies our mission and determination to break down barriers to success,” added Dr. McColgin.

Herkimer College is ranked among the top two-year colleges in the nation based on transfer and graduation rates.
