Wayne State University Eliminates Fees for Nonresident Students
Qualified students from across the country can now attend Wayne State University without having to pay out-of-state tuition.
Wayne State University has announced their new Discover Detroit Scholarship which eliminates nonresident charges for four years of undergraduate education. The scholarship is valued at approximately $60,000.
To qualify for the Discover Detroit Scholarship, entering freshmen must have at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale, plus an ACT score of at least 24 or an SAT score of 1160 or higher earned after March 2016.
Transfer students can also qualify with at least a 3.0 or higher overall cumulative GPA and at least 24 transferable hours from a qualified community college. Transfer students with fewer than 24 hours must meet the requirements for both entering freshmen and transfer students.
It's a welcome break for nonresident students, but is the change fair to Michigan residents and future students who financially support Wayne State University?
