The Seward County Community College Board of Trustees met Monday and addressed student tuition and fees for the 2007-08 school year, as well as heard reports from the Colvin Adult Learning Center and the Mathematics program.
Following a presentation from the administration, the board approved the same tuition and fees for the 2007-08 school year. Tuition and fees for an in-state student will remain at $62 per credit hour. Border county tuition and fees will remain $72 per credit hour, out-of-state and international, $85 per credit hour and Seward Online, $86 per credit hour. This will be the second year in a row in which SCCC has not increased the credit hour tuition/fee amount.
According to a recent study, there continues to be a great need for Adult Basic Education in Kansas especially in the areas of English as a Second Language and the program designed to seek the GED, and this is true in the Liberal area as well, according to Dr. Susan Lukawgo, director of the Colvin Adult Learning Center, who gave a report to the Board Monday. Student participation this year has exceeded participation in 2006, indicating a continual trend for individuals seeking to improve their English speaking and writing skills and seeking to complete their Kansas State High School diploma. The Colvin Center is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. As part of the year-long celebration, the students at the Colvin Center invite the public to enjoy foods from around the world from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. or 6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 12, at the Colvin Center.
In the past year, the center has served 549 students in both Liberal and Hugoton in a variety of areas including ESL, GED, citizenship and children’s literacy and education.
The Colvin Center offers assistance to students who need to prepare to take the General Education Development Tests that lead to a Kansas State High School Diploma.
Lukwago said that the cost per student is $557.74 compared to the state average of $648.55.
Each May the center holds a graduation ceremony for those who have completed the requirements for the GED and have passed all five official tests. This year’s graduation is Sunday, May 6. Students from Hugoton will have an opportunity to participate in the graduation ceremony this year.
One of the greatest successes of the Colvin Center is that 100 percent of the students in the citizenship classes successfully complete their interview process in Wichita. Part of that success of citizenship is attributed to Elva Morales who works with these students, said Lukwago.
Following a presentation by Cynthia Rapp, dean of instruction, the board approved the Mathematics Program Review with the next formal review scheduled in five years.
In the future, the math department plans to identify and address curricular gaps in the current developmental curriculum, if they exist, and to improve the process for assessing program outcomes.
In addition, the program will evaluate the student waiver process to determine if students are enrolled in a class that they are not prepared to take. One way to address this is through improved advising processes and in-house assessment to see if the student is really ready a class.
Rapp also told the board that Doralia Reynolds, former SCCC Business Division Chair and EduKan online instructor, was selected by eCollege for the Outstanding Online Instructor Award. She was recognized for her innovation and development of the online marketing classes she teaches through EduKan.
Sixteen SCCC students who are members of SCCC’s Students in Free Enterprise placed first in regional competition in Miami and will move on to nationals in Dallas.
The green seats have been removed from the college gym with 52 of the original seats being sold. The floor is now being prepared for installation of the new seats. Expected completion date will be prior to graduation May 12.
Anyone who would like to purchase a brass plate for the back of one of the new seats, may make a donation to the SCCC Development Foundation for a minimum of $50 per plate. This is an opportunity to promote a business, show support of SCCC as an alumnus or friend or honor the memory of someone.
