WSU to offer in-state tuition to all Global Campus students | Schools
Washington State University is looking to eliminate boundaries when it comes to their online course offerings.
WSU announced Friday that its Board of Regents voted to offer in-state tuition to all of its Global Campus online students “regardless of their location.”
“This positions us well in an ever increasing and competitive global market,” David Cillay, vice president of the Global Campus, said in a news release. “Last Friday's decision is another important step in WSU's long efforts to bring education beyond geographical boundaries.”
WSU reviewed 20 universities with “successful online programs” and concluded that 17 of those programs offered a flat rate to its students, according to the news release.
Currently, Global Campus tuition is 28 percent higher for non-residents. The new policy will be implemented in the 2013 fall semester for both undergraduate and grad students, the change will not affect the online MBA or executive MBA programs, though.
