Missouri Southern extends tuition plan to nearby states

Monday, May 21, 2012 | 10:28 a.m. CDT

JOPLIN — Missouri Southern State University has approved in-state tuition rates for students who live in portions of Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Illinois.

The university said Friday that the new plan gives the in-state rate of about $169 per credit hour to students as far west as Wichita, Kan., and as far south as Fort Smith, Ark. It also extends into Oklahoma and Illinois.

The new plan, which takes effect this fall, replaces the former Non-Resident Scholarship, which had been available for qualifying out-of-state students. The new plan, however, is also available to both full- and part-time students.
