HBCUs that Waive Out-of-State Fees

Making Great Schools More Affordable

There are great HBCUs across the country.  Many of those that are recognized for doing an outstanding job are state schools.  How can a student from a different state attend one of those great colleges with the cost of attendance consistently rising?  One way is by having the out-of-state fees waived.  Many state HBCUs already have a process in place for doing so, but there are usually specific requirements that must be met, as well as an application that must be completed, by a certain date.  But, for those who qualify, its a way to make that degree more affordable.   Interested students should visit the college's website or call for more information.  

Additionally, many HBCUs participate in the Academic Common Market, a program that allows students from certain states attend a public school in another state as long as they are enrolled in a particular program.  For a list of HBCUs and eligible programs, click here.  Visit the Academic Common Market, Southern Regional Education Board's website for details.
