ARNOLD, Md. (AP) — Senior citizens taking non-credit courses at Anne Arundel Community College this fall can expect to see their fees double.

College spokesman Dan Baum says the school’s Board of Trustees has voted to raise the fee for seniors to enroll in the courses from $40 to $80 per semester. Under state law, tuition for seniors is waived.

The Capital of Annapolis reports the increase is projected to raise some $300,000, and is part of an effort to absorb a $5 million cut in county funding. Baum says the school is also considering increases to parking fines and fees for community organizations using college facilities, as well as a new transcript fee.
