Baton Rouge Community College is making adjustments to its policies and procedures to support students who were hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Officials say the school is nixing non-resident fees and waiving online fees for students this fall in addition to suspending fees that are normally required of new students.
BRCC Chancellor Willie E. Smith issued a statement Saturday, explaining the reason for the change in policy, saying that he hopes that by eliminating some of the financial burden that they can help students can back on track to continue their studies.
The elimination of non-resident fees will save full-time students more than $2,000 and full-time online non-resident students approximately $2,500.
