FSCC offers tuition waiver for Bourbon County residents

Fort Scott, Kan.—Fort Scott Community College has expanded its tuition waiver for Bourbon County residents who wish to take classes at the Fort Scott campus or online. FSCC will now waive the tuition costs, up to fifteen credit hours, for any Bourbon County resident who enrolls at FSCC. Students will be responsible for covering fees and purchasing books.

 
According to a study by the Georgetown University Public Policy Institute, 71 percent of jobs in Kansas will require postsecondary education by 2020. “We are always looking for ways to meet the needs of Bourbon County,” said Alysia Johnston, FSCC President. “We are pleased to offer this program to Bourbon County residents, and hope it will help more people pursue their educational goals.”

 
FSCC students can take general education classes for transfer to a four-year institution or pursue a certificate or associate degree. FSCC offers 55 courses that are guaranteed by the Kansas Board of Regents to transfer to any public college or university in the state of Kansas.
 

To apply for the waiver, students should contact the FSCC Admissions Department at 620-223-2700, ext. 3520 or ext. 3530. Students must also complete a Bourbon County Tuition Waiver Form and return it to the Admissions Department prior to the start of the semester.
