NORWICH - The Chenango County Board of Supervisors has moved to amend an existing agreement with the SUNY Morrisville Norwich campus that results in a nominal increase in taxpayer costs of sending high school students to on-campus college classes.
The resolution passed by the board this month stipulates that the county pay $75 per credit hour for Chenango County high school students attending classes on the SUNY Morrisville Norwich campus. The county had previously paid only $50 per credit hour.
Charges for students who attend online will remain at $50 per credit hour.
College officials said the agreement, which allows high school students to take credit courses at SUNY Morrisville’s Norwich campus at a subsidized cost, needed amendment in order to suit today’s budgetary restraints.
