ST. PETERSBURG – Tuition at St. Petersburg College will remain unchanged next school year.
At its May meeting the Board of Trustees approved an operating budget for the 2014-15 year, calling for a freeze in tuition increases. Additional resources to support the college’s student success initiative were funded through the college’s existing budget.
“It’s our commitment to ensure that all students have the resources they need to be successful and to finish what they start. We uphold that commitment again this year by holding the line on our tuition,” said Bill Law, president of St. Petersburg College.
St. Petersburg College tuition was 53 percent less than state universities in the 2013-14 year. The college will be able to support student access and success, and renew and refresh important instructional technologies. This approach will allow students to benefit from support beyond the classroom and ensure that all students have access to quality and affordable education.
