APSU to begin new fee schedule for out-of-state online students

Starting in July 2010, Austin Peay State University will offer a new fee structure for out-of-state students attending online courses exclusively through the institution.

The new fee program is called eRate, approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents. Instead of paying out-of-state tuition rates, which are roughly three times APSUs in-state rates, eRate recipients will pay a rate that is 1.5 times the in-state tuition rate. Previously, online students living outside Tennessee paid the standard out-of-state rate.

The new eRate will be available to students who enroll at APSU, are classified as nonresidents of Tennessee and are enrolled exclusively in APSU's online courses. A student must meet all three criteria to be eligible for the reduced out-of-state rate.

Students enrolled in any type courses other than online will not be eligible for the eRate and will incur traditional nonresident fees and charges. If a student is enrolled in both online and other type courses, that students cannot gain eligibility by dropping other type courses.

APSU offers a number of associate, bachelor's and master's degree programs fully online, and students living outside Tennessee would benefit from the new eRate.
