BEATRICE – Southeast Community College has set tuition and room and board rates as it transitions to a semester system, next fall.
The SCC Board, meeting at the Beatrice Campus Tuesday, approved semester credit-hour cost at $108, and will charge a $3 facilities fee per credit hour.
:08 “a whole number”
College President Dr. Paul Illich says it’s a 3.6% increase in tuition and fees, is projected to bring in an additional $775,000 for college operations.
Room and board rates will increase significantly at Beatrice and Milford Campuses the coming year, with a switch to a full meal plan. The SCC board also approved Missouri-based Great Western as the food service provider for the college.
The guaranteed maximum price for a new Falls City Learning Center was established, at just over $3.19 million. College Attorney Rex Schultze says that’s a ceiling on the price of the project.

SCC has several building projects going on, including new residential housing at Beatrice and Milford Campuses. Board member Kathy Boellstorff says the public can view that work on a webcam on the SCC website.

Dr. Illich says another project being constructed is a dining hall at the Beatrice Campus.

The SCC Board Tuesday selected Hausmann Construction as the construction manager of a planned Health Sciences addition at the Lincoln Campus, and Boyd Jones Construction as the manager for a new Diesel Technology facility at the Milford Campus.
