The Kansas Board of Regents gave approval to K-State, Emporia State and Wichita State Universities to charge a reduced out-of-state tuition rate to first-time freshmen or transfer students from Illinois.
K-State is already offering the rate to students from Arkansas, California, Colorado, Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas. President Richard Myers addressed one regent’s concern that the program is resulting in students not remaining in Kansas after they complete a degree.
The rate is 150 percent of the resident tuition rate and will go into effect in the Fall 2022 semester. Myers says the university will not incur any losses as a result.
Students who qualify must have a 3.25 GPA, and a composite 22 on the A-C-T (1100 S-A-T).
