Fort Scott Community College has announced that they plan to utilize federal funding to assist in paying student fees for fall 2021 through summer 2022. Federal funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund will be utilized during the next academic year to pay all students' general fees. The plan will save students nearly two million dollars for the next academic year.
General fees are 55 dollars per credit hour and courses at all campus locations, including online and concurrent high school courses, will be covered. Some fees for specialty items, such as a cosmetology kit, are not eligible for this funding.
