FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ)- Some Kentucky State University students from out of state will soon pay less tuition.
The school’s Board of Regents approved an agreement with the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) to reduce tuition from $9,500 per semester to $5,775 per semester for students in the seven states touching Kentucky, as well as Michigan.
This will begin Fall 2019. The University says students under the Thorobred Promise (a four-year tuition guarantee) will also have tuition lowered.
According to KSU, the initiative will help students graduate in four years by reducing financial barriers.
“This tuition reduction enables Kentucky State University to be a more competitive option for students and parents seeking a quality education at an affordable price,” University President M. Christopher Brown II said.
Brown also says the University will now be able to attract more out-of-state students.
