If you live outside of Michigan but in one of the other Great Lakes states or Ontario, Wayne State University says you can pay only a bit more than the undergraduate tuition for in-state residents.
Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania residents are eligible for its Great Lakes Tuition Award, according to the Detroit school.
The program includes a 10 percent surcharge on the in-state tuition rate, which is about $12,000. Out-of-state tuition is about $13,000 more. The tuition award allows students taking 15 credit hours per semester to save about $11,600 each 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 Winters said Wednesday.
