From Tina David

      FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — To increase access to an affordable college education, Broward College is offering four $10,000 ($10K) baccalaureate degree options in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs. Broward College was one of 24 state colleges that accepted Gov. Rick Scott’s “$10,000 Degree Challenge.”

“Broward College is committed to providing access to higher education at an affordable cost to those individuals that seek it,” said Broward College President J. David Armstrong, Jr. “We are especially pleased to be able to focus on STEM degrees that are high wage, high skill and in high demand both locally and nationally, thus helping employers with their workforce needs and providing a boost to both the local and global economy.”

The $10K degrees will include bachelor’s degrees in the following:

•     Teacher Education Mathematics (B.S.)

•     Teacher Education Science (B.S.)

•     Information Technology (BAS)

•     Global Trade and Logistics (BAS)

Broward College will begin accepting applications for the $10K degrees from current students who are now enrolled and have completed 75 percent of their associate’s degree by Monday, Sept. 16, 2013. New first-time-in-college students may apply starting in January 2014.

“The Florida College System is a leader in providing access to high-quality, affordable higher education opportunities,” said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. “I commend Broward College for accepting the governor’s challenge and offering programs of critical importance to Florida’s future.”

Those individuals interested in applying to Broward College in pursuit of a $10K degree program must meet the following requirements – 3.0 overall GPA; First Time in College student; committed to continuous enrollment (excluding summers); and must maintain Florida residency.
