WSU offers tuition break to out-of-state students

October 28, 2013

Wayne State University is offering in-state tuition rates plus a 10 percent fee to undergraduates from seven surrounding states and Ontario, under a new program called the Great Lakes Tuition Award. The states are Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois and New York. The university expects the program to court out-of-state enrollment and estimates those taking advantage of it who take 15 credit hours a semester will save an average of $11,633 per year. Wayne State offered the award this semester to first-time freshmen and plans to extend it to other undergrads soon. About 317 full-time students enrolled in Wayne State are from Canada and 238 from other U.S. states.
