Ten Georgia colleges and universities will allow students from Puerto Rico, currently displaced by Hurricane Maria, to study here next semester, with the Puerto Rican institutions receiving the tuition.
“This partnership means that Puerto Rico’s private college students will not suffer a delay in their studies,” said Georgia Independent College Association President Susanna Baxter. “Our sister institutions in Puerto Rico will also receive the tuition needed to make payroll and make repairs. This is a small way we can help our fellow citizens during this rebuilding period.”
The Georgia colleges and universities participating in the partnership are: Agnes Scott College, Berry College, Brewton-Parker College, Covenant College, LaGrange College, Oglethorpe University, Toccoa Falls College, Truett McConnell University, Wesleyan College and Young Harris College.
