Wayne State College Extends New Tuition Rate to South Dakota Residents

Published: 8-16-2013 9:05 am

The Nebraska State College System Board of Trustees recently approved the addition of South Dakota residents as eligible for the Midwestern Higher Education Compact tuition rate of 150 percent of the resident tuition rate. The change, which became effective July 1, puts Wayne State tuition,fees, and room and board costs below that of the University of South Dakota and Dakota Wesleyan and just slightly more than South Dakota State University and Dakota State University.

"We are excited about the chance to provide residents of South Dakota with the opportunity to earn a degree at Wayne State College,"said Wayne State President Curt Frye. "Our location just across the state line,our excellent academic, athletic and extracurricular programs, and this new tuition rate give prospective students another great choice as they make their decision about college."

The new rate for South Dakota residents offers prospective students the opportunity to earn a degree in Nebraska, which has a strong economy and high employment rates, while staying close to home. Less than an hour from the border, Wayne State offers small class sizes, individual attention, and multiple opportunities for involvement in strong intramural programs, student government, study abroad programs in Taiwan and Greece, and Service-Learning projects throughout Northeast Nebraska.

"Students will be seeing us and hearing from us very soon," said Wayne State Director of Admissions Kevin Halle. "We do know, however, that the best way a college decision is made is to plan a campus visit. We have several opportunities for students and their families to do just that."
