LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)—The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is cutting the out-of-state fee for most online degree programs and graduate certificate programs by more than half, according to the university’s website.
“We are trying to be more responsive to working adults and those who want a UL Lafayette degree but are unable to relocate.”- Downden
In September, the university finalized the rate decrease and out-of-state students will start to see the cuts starting in spring of 2017.
According to UL-Lafayette, students enrolled in an online degree program will pay the same rate, whether they live within or outside of Louisiana.
Luke Downden, Director of Distance Learning said the university is already attracting an increasing number of students because of the reputation of the university’s programs.
“The reduced tuition is key to helping meet the needs and expectations of out-of-state students,” said Luke Dowden, director of Distance Learning. “We are trying to be more responsive to working adults and those who want a UL Lafayette degree but are unable to relocate.”
