Fees Increasing January 1st, 2013

It’s not easy announcing that rates are going up, and may be why I’ve waited so long in sending this newsletter out. However, these small increases will help bring the increasing costs of providing the classes more into balance.

At SSCC, we have increased the number of classes per session from 9 to 10 weeks so that you are getting more for your money.

Burien Community Center students, anyone 50+ years old can offset the increase by taking advantage of the senior scholarship of $50 per quarter. Talk to the front desk for more information.

For the ongoing classes in the ID, on Capitol Hill and at Fauntleroy, the increases are small (2-15%), and I hope that you will take advantage of the current Holiday Tuition Special available through January 15th.
