ST. JOSEPH — Missouri Western State University is offering the equivalent of in-state tuition to students from 51 selected counties in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska, potentially saving them $6,000 per year.
The university said its "Griffon Rate" will be in effect this fall. It applies to both undergraduate and graduate tuition, for new and current students.
Undergraduates taking classes on the main campus in St. Joseph will save about $200 per credit hour. Regular tuition for out-of-state students is $392 per credit hour. The "Griffon Rate" will be roughly $192 per credit hour.
Missouri Western said it also will continue to offer scholarships for out-of-state students who meet academic requirements, but the "Griffon Rate" can't be used in conjunction with them.
