Crowder eliminates out-of-state tuition charges beginning in fall 2013


From staff reports

NEOSHO, Mo. — The Crowder College Board of Trustees has voted to  eliminate out-of-state tuition starting in the fall of 2013.

“With the proximity of our locations all being 20 miles or less from surrounding states, it gives Crowder an opportunity to offer very competitive programs to students at a reduced rate,” college officials said in a statement. “The opening of the McDonald County campus will allow for even more opportunities for students who might not have considered Crowder.”

Based on current tuition rates, college officials said the savings would be $29 per credit hour.
