Out-of-State Tuition Waivers at HBCUs?

Hello! I'm living outside the South but have been interested in HBCUs for a while. However, the out-of-state tuition can be a deal-breaker. Are there any HBCUs that offer waivers or discounts for out-of-state students? Looking to save some money while getting the best education.

Hi there! I completely understand the concern about out-of-state tuition costs—they can indeed be a significant factor in college decisions. My son faced a similar situation and we discovered that some HBCUs offer a range of scholarships and partnerships that can result in reduced tuition for out-of-state students. For example, Alcorn State University has a program where they might offer reduced rates to high-achieving students from any state. Similarly, Central State University offers significant tuition discounts for non-Ohio residents. I highly recommend checking each school’s financial aid page for up-to-date information on the opportunities they offer. Reach out to the admissions office as well—they are usually very helpful. Good luck pursuing your educational goals!
