No 2022-23 Tuition Increase at Walters State
June 20, 2022

The Tennessee Board of Regents voted to freeze tuition at all Tennessee community colleges during its June 16 meeting, including Walters State. 
 
“Our students and their families are facing many financial challenges this year,” Dr. Tony Miksa, president of Walters State, said. “By keeping tuition at its current rate in this period of inflation, our students will be able to make decisions for the coming year knowing that tuition rates will not increase.” 
 
Walters State remains committed to keeping college affordable for students in its 10-county services area, Miksa said. TBR estimates that the cost of a attending community college is less than half the estimated $10,000 cost at public four-year universities. 
 
Programs like Tennessee Promise, Tennessee Reconnect and the Tennessee Hope 
Scholarship make it possible for many students to attend Walters State tuition-free. Most students graduate without any student debt. 
 
Walters State offers over 150 programs. Some programs prepare students to transfer to a four-year university and complete a bachelor’s degree. Other programs enable students to begin a career in an in-demand field immediately following completion of a two-year degree or technical certificate. 
 
Registration is now underway for fall semester. Classes are offered at four convenient campuses located in Morristown, Greeneville, Sevierville and Tazewell and at the Walters State Center in Newport. Dual Enrollment classes are offered at area high schools. Classes are also offered in a variety of formats ranging from traditional classrooms to online classes.

Fall semester begins Aug. 22.
