SPC Offers In-State Tuition to Students from Hurricane-Ravaged Areas
The offer of in-state tuition is for displaced students from Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Houston area.
PINELLAS COUNTY – With the recent devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, St. Petersburg College will be offering in-state tuition rates to displaced students from Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Houston area.
Additionally, the college’s $40 application fee will be waived for these students.
On Sept. 26, Gov. Rick Scott asked all Florida state colleges and universities to offer in-state tuition to any student who was displaced from their home in Puerto Rico. SPC has extended this offer to students in the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Houston area.
“As Floridians, we know all too well the pain and anxiety that a destructive hurricane can cause. Our hearts are with all of the storm victims,” SPC President Tonjua Williams said. “At SPC, we are solution-oriented in helping students continue their education. Returning to class is a huge part of restoring a sense of normalcy and routine.”
Impacted students can contact St. Petersburg College’s pre-admissions team at (727) 341-3400. Current students or those who have already applied, can contact Maria Drew at (727) 341-3121 or Mary Ortiz at (727) 341-3403.
