PBSC holds the line on tuition for seventh consecutive year
Palm Beach State College students will not see a hike in their tuition for the seventh straight year.
The District Board of Trustees has voted to freeze tuition as part of its approval of the $132.5 million 2018-2019 fiscal year budget that goes into effect July 1.
In-state tuition and fees will remain at $101 (including $76.92 for tuition) per credit hour or $303 for a three-credit hour course. Tuition and fees for postsecondary adult vocational program courses are fixed at $83.40 per credit hour and $2.78 per contact hour. The cost of bachelor’s degree courses, regulated by the Florida Legislature, remains at $122.85 per credit hour or $368.55 for a three-credit hour class.
While technology and capital improvement fees rose slightly twice, and the student activity fee rose once in the last seven years, Palm Beach State’s tuition has remained flat. To compare, in 2012-2013, students paid $98.25 per credit hour or $294.75 for a three-credit hour course.
