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.

Students who have questions may call 561-967-7222.

  1. Are you looking for Host Families for students who are able to get out of Puerto Rico to continue college? My wife and I, who are established in Palm Beach County and are active in our church, want to offer housing to someone from Puerto Rico who has lost their home. If that is a college student then we want to assist to that end. They might need their own transportation.
