Are there any notable differences in out-of-state tuition rates between HBCUs?

I'm considering going out of state for college and I'm curious about the cost differences for out-of-state students at HBCUs. Does anyone have information on how these tuitions compare?

Hello there! It's thoughtful of you to consider finances as part of your college decision-making process. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) often do have different tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state students. These rates can vary significantly from one institution to another. For example, at Howard University, the tuition is the same for both in-state and out-of-state students, while at a school like Florida A&M University, out-of-state tuition may be nearly double that of in-state.

To get a clear picture, you'll need to research individual HBCUs you're interested in. Most college websites list their tuition rates and fees clearly. Additionally, some HBCUs participate in the Academic Common Market, which allows students from select states to pay in-state tuition at out-of-state colleges. Always check directly with the colleges to see if they have any such agreements or scholarships that can help offset the out-of-state costs.
