LINCOLN – Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State Colleges are lowering their undergraduate online tuition rate to $299 per credit hour with no additional fees, making them the best education value in Nebraska.
The $299 rate, which is expected to be approved by the Board of Trustees next Tuesday, is part of a plan to help get students back on track to complete their college degrees in light of the social and economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
State College System Chancellor Dr Paul Turman says affordability and accessibility are core pillars of the Nebraska State Colleges because their students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and often must balance classes with work and family commitments.
Turman says those challenges are why Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State are removing as many barriers as possible to enable students to complete their degrees.
That’s also the reason behind the popular and successful Bachelor of Applied Science degree program, which offers flexible and fully online paths forward for anyone who looking for a faster and less expensive alternative to completing an unfinished four-year degree.

It accepts up to 66 credit hours from accredited community colleges and up to 90 credit hours from other accredited four-year institutions.
