WSU lowers tuition for non-residents

dave_pressReleaseWashington State University has decided to offer an in-state tuition rate to Global Campus online students, regardless of their location.

“This positions us well in an ever increasing and competitive global market,” said David Cillay, vice president of the Global Campus. “Last Friday’s decision is another important step in WSU’s long efforts to bring education beyond geographical boundaries.”

Global Campus non-resident tuition is currently 28 percent higher than resident tuition. The change is expected to take effect for Fall 2013 and is for both undergraduate and graduate students, although it doesn’t apply to either WSU’s online MBA or EMBA.

Global Campus resident tuition rates will remain identical to WSU system-wide tuition as will rates for non-resident students enrolled at a physical WSU campus who take Global Campus courses.
