Virginia Tech wants to pay incoming in-state students to delay their start date and not attend the university for up to a year.

The Roanoke Times reports the school budgeted $3.3 million to quell the expected 7,500-student freshman class, which officials have said would strain the town.

The school has said this class would be its largest.

The payment options include a $1,000 grant to take a gap year and tuition reimbursement for taking classes at a community college for a year.
