DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - Dutchess Community College students will see an increase in tuition next year following the approval Monday of the college's budget by the Dutchess County Legislature.

Under the new budget, tuition will increase by $168 annually. The college’s 2017-18 budget is up 1 percent from the current $66.1 million, causing the four percent rise in tuition.

The budget also calls for a $1 million increase in the county’s contribution to the college, with the county kicking in $14,537,898 to the school.

Even with the increase, the school will continue to have the lowest community college tuition in the state, school officials said.

The legislature voted 22 to 1 for the approval with Legislator Joel Tyner voting against it; two legislators were absent.
