Wayne State University offers tuition breaks to residents of Great Lakes states, Ontario

Continuing a trend to attract out-of-state students, Wayne State University said anyone from all Great Lakes states and Ontario will be eligible to pay slightly more than the tuition for in-state residents. Beginning in January, students from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Ontario who receive the Great Lakes Tuition Award will save about $11,633 a year, based on 15-credit-hour semesters. In-state undergraduates pay $11,097 for a 30-credit hour load, about $907 more than in the 2012-13 school year. "We look forward to giving a broader array of students the opportunity to take advantage of a very reasonable tuition base to attend this top research university," Wayne State Provost Margaret E. Winters said Wednesday.
