Summary

The State University of New York (University) Board of Trustees authorized campus presidents to lower tuition rates for undergraduate, non-matriculated, part-time, out-of state students in accordance with guidelines that provide for approval by the chancellor of the specific rates and assure that costs associated with the enrollment of these students are covered.

These guidelines stipulate that any differing tuition rates for out-of-state, undergraduate, part-time, non-matriculated students must not be less than 15 percent above the New York State resident part-time tuition rate and must be set to cover total direct instructional costs.

The guidelines also establish the maximum number of credit hours taken in a non-matriculated, part-time status at the discounted rate that may be applied toward approved baccalaureate or associate degree programs. The guidelines further establish a requirement for campuses to report by May 1 of each academic year in which the discounted rate is charged, the number of students affected, the number of credits taken under the discounted rate, and the revenues generated.
