Wayne State College proudly announces a new One Rate at Wayne State tuition plan that offers in-state tuition rates to all undergraduate students pursuing in-person programs of study, regardless of their home state. The new universal in-state tuition rate, which begins Fall 2021, will save out-of-state students nearly $6,000 per year on tuition costs.
“Our new in-state tuition plan recognizes the value of a diverse student population made up of students from outside of Nebraska,” said Dr. Marysz Rames, President of Wayne State College. “This new rate also supports the college’s ongoing goal to grow the Nebraska workforce by attracting talented students to the state who often stay after graduation.”
The new One Rate at Wayne State plan sets WSC non-resident undergraduate tuition at one dollar above the resident undergraduate rate. The additional dollar will be waived by the college. The new rate applies to all new and returning undergraduate students in Fall 2021, as long as they are taking in-person classes.
“Wayne State has been serving non-resident students for a very long time,” said Kevin Halle, Director of Admissions at WSC. “The change to a single rate for tuition matches our commitment to remain affordable and give students an opportunity to save while they pursue a career they are most passionate about.”
“I have always been impressed by the number of students who attend Wayne State from out of state,” Rames said. “We have students pursuing degrees in our quality academic programs from 34 states. This new rate will allow us to make their pursuit of a life-changing four-year degree more affordable and make us more attractive to students who want to venture a little farther from home yet remain confident in a safe and supportive learning environment.”
“Wayne State has had a footprint out of state for a very long time due to our incentive programs for non-resident students,” Halle said. “Our former non-resident rate often rivaled the cost of a four-year degree at many institutions outside Nebraska. Now, we will become an even more affordable choice for non-resident students.”
