The 2.7 percent increase will take effect at all 23 institutions within Virginia's Community Colleges (VCCS) to provide resources to enhance teaching and learning, according to Jeffrey Kraus, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Relations for VCCS.

Kraus said the new rate keeps community college tuition and mandatory fees at approximately one-third of the comparable costs at Virginia’s public four-year universities.
