Out-of-State Tuition Discount Programs
When researching colleges outside of Iowa, be sure to ask if the college you are interested in attending offers a reduced tuition rate for residents of Iowa. Many schools in adjacent states offer a discount to out-of-state students from neighboring communities.
While these programs may reduce the tuition paid at out-of-state institutions, it is important to remember that only Iowa residents attending eligible Iowa colleges and universities are eligible to receive State of Iowa scholarship and grant programs. When considering enrollment at an out-of-state college, be sure to factor the increased cost of tuition, travel expenses and potentially higher cost of living into your financial plans.
