According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, the cost of attending a public university in Florida is rising swiftly again.
Students at one of the eleven Florida public universities will see a fifteen percent increase in tuition this fall, after the Florida Board of Governors allowed each university to add a seven percent “tuition differential” to the eight percent increase already approved by the Legislature in April. For five universities, it’s the fourth year in a row for a fifteen percent increase.
While other institutions are increasing tuition annually, CBT College will not raise tuition this year in an effort to help students get started on their careers. Instead, it is planning to expand its scholarship programs across the board including to international students.
CBT College is very proud to be expanding its scholarships program, and to date, the college has awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships for its students in the past year. “Instead of scaring students away by tuition hikes and default loans being reported to be at an all time high, we felt it was important to be able to create and expand the educational opportunities to all our students, whether they are from the local community or abroad,” said, Luis Llerena, Executive Director of CBT College.
