The Allen Community College of 2018 is a more diverse, culturally rich, many-accented place than it was last year. Over the summer, the ACC board of trustees agreed to radically cut its cost of tuition for international students. By dropping its rate per credit hour from $147 to $60, ACC became one of the few, if not the only, community college in the state to offer a flat tuition to all of its students, whether in-state, out-of-state, or foreign-born.
Since the change, ACCs international population has jumped from six students in 2017 to 20 students this year, and the college is scheduled to welcome a new crew of international enrollees next semester.
