(Neb.)-Chadron State To Offer Lower Education Costs For Out-Of-Staters

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/18/2013 07:04 AM

(CHADRON)-Reactions from surrounding states' high school guidance professionals are “awesome, exciting,” as Chadron State College begins offering new, lower tuition rates for out-of-state students.
Beginning with the fall 2013 semester, all incoming and returning out-of-state undergraduate CSC students will pay only $1 more per credit hour than their fellow students who are Nebraska residents.
At their regular meeting last week, the Nebraska State College System Board of Trustees approved the tuition rate change. The CSC three-year pilot project will be renewed annually unless other action is taken by the board. Annual reports will be submitted to the board by CSC officials regarding the status of the pilot project.
CSC Interim Vice President of Enrollment Management and Marketing Jon Hansen said, “We are excited to be able offer the new Chadron State Eagle Rate to our students attending from other states and around the globe. It represents our commitment to providing high quality, affordable education to all students.  The Chadron State Eagle Rate will be a game changer for CSC as we develop and implement our plan for growth and continuous improvement.”
Lynne Bath, guidance counselor for DouglasHigh School in Douglas, Wyo., a CSC alumnae and parent of two CSC graduates said, “It makes the CSC tuition competitive for everyone. It was already competitive for those who qualified for the Non-Resident Scholars Program. I’m glad to hear this news. It still makes me smile when I think of earning my undergraduate and graduate degrees from ChadronState.”
Paula Wilson, school counselor at Rapid CityStevensHigh School in Rapid City, S.D. said, “More and more with these economic times students are not always able to go to their school of choice because of monetary reasons – now more students will look at your school as viable option.”
The Chadron State Eagle Rate brings to a close the Non-Resident Scholars program which was utilized by CSC for about 20 years to recruit out-of-state undergraduate students with an in-state tuition rate if they met the ACT/SAT, class rank or GPA requirements.
