UIS looks to offer in-state tuition to out of state students

As the growth spurt continues at the University of Illinois at Springfield they're now looking to recruit more out-of-state students.

The university is looking at offering in-state tuition to students who live in counties along the Missouri and Iowa boarder, a savings of over $200 per credit hour.

The Student Government Association voted unanimously in favor of the plan. The resolution now goes before the U of I Board of Trustees. They are expected to vote on it at their September 23 meeting in Urbana.
