Wayne State University Alters In-State Tuition Criteria

DETROIT (AP) – Wayne State University has changed its criteria for qualifying to pay the in-state tuition rate.

The university board approved the revisions Friday. They will take effect in January.

In-state tuition for an average Wayne State student is $11,967. Out-of-state tuition costs about $13,000 more.

Under the new policy, residency no longer will be the primary means of qualifying for in-state tuition. Instead, it will be one of three options.

The others will be graduating from a Michigan high school after at least three years of attendance or obtaining a Michigan GED, and being a military veteran or active member of the armed forces.

Provost Margaret Winters says the changes are fair and remove barriers to otherwise qualified applicants.
