Albany State University to offer in-state tuition for more students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University will waive out-of-state tuition for residents of Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina who meet admission requirements in Fall 2015.

The University System of Georgia's (USG) Board of Regents approved this border state amendment to the waiver policy for Albany State University and several other institutions during the March 2015 board meeting.

As of April 2015, in-state tuition and fees for full-time ASU students completing 12 credit hours is $2,596 per semester and $7,598.44 per semester for full-time, out-of-state students, which constitutes savings of $5,002.44.

Prospective out-of-state students interested in the tuition waivers must provide evidence of established, maintained residency in the qualifying bordering state for at least 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of classes.

In conjunction with a "Come on Over" campaign launch, ASU will host Acceptance Day 2015 on Saturday, April 18, and Saturday, May 2. The day will serve as an opportunity for newly admitted students to celebrate the decision to attend ASU, and will include pre-advisement sessions, a Signing Day ceremony and a luncheon, among other activities.
