TOPEKA — Missouri students attending the University of Kansas campus in Overland Park will get a tuition break, starting next fall.
The Kansas Board of Regents on Wednesday approved a proposal to allow students from 11 Missouri counties to pay the same tuition that Kansas students pay on the Edwards Campus.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the current Metro KC Tuition Waiver applies to students from only four counties. Undergraduates from Missouri get a discount but still pay more than Kansas residents.
Starting next fall, the tuition break will be available for Missouri students from Clay, Cass, Jackson, Platte, Buchanan, Clinton, Ray, Lafayette, Johnson, Henry and Bates counties.
