PBSC offers in-state tuition to hurricane victims
Palm Beach State College has joined other colleges in waiving out-of-state tuition for Puerto Rican and Texas students who move to Florida because of the devastation caused by Hurricanes Maria and Harvey.
In making the announcement Thursday, PBSC leaders also said they would consider offering out-of-state tuition waivers to other students who are moving to Florida because their countries, states or territories were negatively impacted by natural disasters.
“Our hearts break for those whose education and lives were disrupted by these disasters. We want them to know that we care,” said PBSC President Ava L. Parker, J.D.
The College will spend the coming days working on the logistics of the out-of-state tuition waivers and will provide more communication. In-state tuition at Palm Beach State is $101 per credit hour compared to $363 per credit hour for out-of-state tuition.
