Albany State has joined a group of higher education institutions to promote enrollment and make things more attractive for out-of-state students.

Each University System college in Albany and a few surrounding cities is now able to offer in-state tuition rates to residents in Florida, South Carolina, and Alabama. Enrollment is expected to see better numbers with the coming school year, ASU leaders attribute the high costs as a major deterrent.

Albany State University Associate Provost Dr. Paul Bryant says
“..Waiving that cost is going to be really huge for them and a great opportunity to now have them come and be a part of the Albany experience here on campus.”

The new tuition rule will go into effect on campus at at least 10 colleges and universities during the upcoming fall semester.
