VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Students from South Carolina, Florida, and Alabama won't have to pay out-of-state tuition to attend Valdosta State University starting this year.

VSU now offers in-state tuition to residents of these surrounding states who meet the requirements for admission. 

“I want to thank Chancellor Hank M. Huckaby and the University System of Georgia Board of Regents for their vision and for their faith in Valdosta State University,” said Dr. William J. McKinney, VSU's ninth president. “This is truly a watershed moment in our history. We look forward to welcoming more students from our neighboring states who can now attend VSU and experience all that we have to offer at a far more affordable price.”

The Board of Regents approved VSU's request to offer unlimited out-of-state tuition waivers to residents of the three border states on Monday. Previously, the university only offered unlimited out-of-state tuition waivers to residents of some Florida counties.

“This change in the out-of-state tuition policy provides a great opportunity for VSU to recruit in one of the closest major metropolitan areas, Jacksonville; a city where many of our alumni reside,” said Andy T. Clark, vice president for the Division of Enrollment, Marketing, and Communications.
Limited out-of-state tuition waivers remain available for international students and residents of the remaining 46 states and Washington, D. C.
