More Kentuckians eligible for in-state tuition

Students in three Kentucky counties–Allen, Calloway and Simpson–now are eligible for in-state tuition at APSU.

The Tennessee Board of Regents approved the proposal June 10. The new rate is in effect for Fall 2005.

Students now have a broader array of choices about where to attend college at comparable costs, says Dr. Bruce Speck, vice president for academic affairs. In addition, some of our academic programs may fit students' specific needs better than the offerings of institutions in Kentucky.

“Students now have a broader array of choices about where to attend college at comparable costs,” says Dr. Bruce Speck, vice president for academic affairs. “In addition, some of our academic programs may fit students' specific needs better than the offerings of institutions in Kentucky.

“In many ways we consider the three counties as part of the larger Clarksville area, and many families in those Kentucky counties may work, shop and develop social ties in Clarksville, so APSU is a logical choice for them.”

Students from Christian, Logan, Todd and Trigg counties in Kentucky also pay in-state tuition.
