JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Attending East Tennessee State University will be less expensive for students from neighboring states.
On Friday, the ETSU Board of Trustees approved a drop in tuition for out-of-state students.
Board members voted to reduce the total out-of-state tuition to $13,500 annually.
Students from nearby states will pay even less.
Students from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky and Georgia will have a tuition of $10,500 for a full academic year.
The change to tuition cost takes effect in the fall of 2021 and only applies to incoming students. Out-of-state students already enrolled at ETSU will not see a change to their tuition.
Below is a slide from the presentation during the board’s meeting, detailing cost reductions for out-of-state students.
