Out-of-State Tuition Waivers
Currently, all first-time students to SOSU will receive a 100% non-resident tuition waiver for their first semester. After their first semester, the non-resident tuition waiver is based upon a student’s college cumulative grade point average.
Beginning with the fall 2007 semester, a first-time student to the University received a 100% non-resident tuition waiver for 2 semesters. All subsequent semesters will be waived based upon their SOSU cumulative grade point average.
Students are still responsible for payment of regular tuition under the out-of-state tuition wavier.
