Two more public universities cut out-of-state tuition
Published: August 17,2012
LORMAN and COLUMBUS — Two more Mississippi public universities will offer tuition breaks to some out-of-state students.
Alcorn State University and the Mississippi University for Women won approval from the College Board yesterday to waive higher charges for non-Mississippi residents. They join Jackson State University, which got permission for a waiver in June.
The Legislature passed a law this year allowing universities to reduce tuition to in-state levels for some non-Mississippians. The schools lobbied for the measure, saying public colleges elsewhere were waiving charges for Mississippi students.
Undergraduates who are Mississippi residents will pay $5,316 to attend MUW this year. Non-residents will pay $14,484.
Mississippi resident undergraduates will pay $5,712 to attend Alcorn full time this year. Non-residents will pay $14,052.
Many students from both groups will pay less because of financial aid.
