Schools with Out-of-state tuition waivers.

<p>I know Clemson and South Carolina do. Alabama does as well I believe. Any others?</p>

<p>BTW, what type of numbers would you need to get these waivers at Clemson + other schools?</p>

<p>I had a 3.6 and a 2200 and got a scholarship and the tuition waiver to South Carolina, if that helps...</p>

<p>If you get a scholarship at South Carolina, your tuition automatically goes to in-state.</p>

<p>Ok, does anybody know what type of stats you need for Clemson's oos waiver?</p>

<p>About a quarter of OK State's 25,000 students at the Stillwater campus come from the DFW area, so this presents a significant finaid challenge when so many students come from one OOS area in particular. Many parts of the DFW area are just 10 minutes from the Oklahoma border, so there is a lot of Texas/Oklahoma integration. The problem with UT is that their admissions policies have been subverted by affirmative action policies, so if you're white, you may as well apply at OSU or OU if you want a decent and affordable college degree, unless you are comfortable winding up at a satellite campus of UT--which I would not be.</p>

<p>OSU has tuition waver programs that all students can get that balance out the difference in OOS tuition. You can also get other scholarships, like a full ride for a national merit scholar, and a $5,000 scholarship for being a legacy. For the tuition waver programs there is no GPA set and the first tier is set at the minimum ACT score to get into OSU. All OOS applicants get something from the following "Nonresident Achievement Awards" :</p>

<p>24 ACT - $7,000
27 ACT - $8,000
30 ACT - $10,000</p>

<p>I don't know what OU does, but I know they have almost as many Texas students as we do. I don't really know why anybody goes to OU, so I definitely can't speak for them..but I've heard from friends of mine going there that their finaid is stingier because they don't invest as much money into it, but they do still have a tuition waver program for OOS similar to OSU's.</p>

<p>Here's a link to OSU's scholarship schedule (*many of these scholarships don't have performance quotas, but instead depend on essays or interviews).

<p>Thank goodness for the State of Oklahoma taking care of us Texas high school</p>

<p>Very nice. I'll have to look into that.</p>

<p>The scholarship deadline is February 1st, so apply early next year. Regular deadline is April something I think..I forget.</p>

<p>I'm assuming that you're a junior looking into colleges to research/visit this summer. If you do chose to check out the Oklahoma universities, keep in mind that OSU/OU do major recruiting for national merit scholars..but don't really recruit any OOS students beyond that, unless they are from Texas.</p>

<p>I'll bump this. Any other schools?</p>

<p>Minnesota doesn't have a OOS waiver, but OOS tuition is is $14K, only three thousand more than instate tuition and cheaper than a lot of state's instate tuition. It is an amazing school too with an unbelievable campus and a new football stadium opening next fall.</p>


<p>Wow, cost as much as my in state universities.</p>

<p>I wish more schools were like UMinn and made OOS tuition a little cheaper</p>

<p><em>cough Michigan, Illinois, Virginia, Wisconsin, Penn State</em></p>

<p><em>cough North Carolina cough</em></p>

<p>UNC's OOS tuition ($22k) is much cheaper than Michigan ($33k), Illinois ($26k), Virginia ($31k), and Penn State ($25k), and is the same as Wisconsin's ($22k).</p>

<p>...I was trying to say I wanted those schools to lower their OOS tuition because I'm interested in them and their scholarships are pretty tough to get. </p>

<p>And UNC seems like a cool school and all, but it is hard as hell to get in OOS.
Plus I'm more of a football guy, so Michigan would probably be a better fit lol</p>

<p>Haha my mistake, I thought you were saying that those schools had OOS tuition that was reasonable. After looking at Michigan and UVa, you can bet I was confused!</p>

<p>And, since you are a football guy, I have to point out that Michigan went 3-9 last year, while UNC went 8-5 including a bowl loss in the postseason. Still, hard to compete with the atmosphere surrounding Michigan football. Hopefully they can get things back on track; I was a huge Mike Hart fan when he played there.</p>

<p>You may want to consider LSU. They have several scholarships for out of state students. Tiger Scholarship - 3.0 gpa & 26+ ACT waives OOS tuition. Golden Oaks Scholarship - 3.0 GPA & 30 ACT waives all tuiton. Several others as well. Our daughter loves the school and will attend (from NJ) with OOS tuition waiver.</p>

<p>On the West Coast, check out the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE), WICHE</a> - Student Exchange Programs, for public tuition exchange schools such as Washington State, some state schools in CA, University of Oregon, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, University of Hawaii,...........check out the list and programs available at each school. Some offer full tuition exchange, some partial tuition exchange.</p>

<p>I had a 3.5 and a 32 ACT and got in-state tuition + $2,000 at South Carolina (will attend).</p>

<p>I understand that University of Delaware is generous with merit $ to help reduce out-of-state tuition. I think U of D is worth a look--perfect size with great engineering (esp. chem eng.) program, nursing, teaching, etc. Princeton Review always had great thing to say about U of D.</p>

<p>ELY - I've heard the exact opposite about Delaware's merit aid.</p>

<p>Delaware's merit aid is skewed in distribution--lots of people get small awards of a couple k, and then a select few get full tuition/full rides. Academics tend to be stronger in the more pre-professional areas, vs. traditional liberal arts.</p>
