Pasco-Hernando State College’s District Board of Trustees (DBOT) will consider approving proposed adjusted course-related fees at an October 19, 2017 board meeting to be held at 6 p.m. at the West Campus in New Port Richey, 10230 Ridge Rd. This meeting was previously scheduled for September 19, but was postponed due to significant interruptions in College operations caused by hurricane Irma.
Fee adjustment proposals are reviewed and approved for DBOT consideration by PHSC’s Council of Academic Affairs, a committee that includes representation by administrators, deans, academic department chairs, faculty and staff.
For details regarding proposed fees adjustments, justification for the fees and fee implementation dates, visit www.phsc.edu/courses/proposed-new-fee-adjustments. Questions or concerns about the proposed fees should be directed to the appropriate dean listed on the web page.
Most fee adjustments relate to vendor increases for workforce courses, laboratories, and program testing, which may be covered by financial aid, scholarships and grants. All fees charged by vendors are negotiated by the college, with additional fee increases and decreases expected in the coming academic year.
Considered among the most cost-effective public colleges in the nation, PHSC has not raised tuition since the 2012-13 academic year.
