WVU Law to Offer In-State Rate to Some Out-of-State Students

Woodburn Hall

The West Virginia University College of Law plans to offer in-state tuition rates to students from other states who have graduated from a West Virginia college.

WVU said in a news release Thursday that the Loyalty Tuition Program could save each qualified student more than $16,000 a year. The offer would begin with the fall 2017 semester.

About 23 percent of students in this year’s entering class are from out of state.

To qualify, students must have earned a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree from an accredited college or university in West Virginia.
