The Board of Trustees at Western Illinois University recently made a decision that could make WIU a very viable choice for students across the country. The school's Graduate Studies program will now be offering their in-state tuition rates to any domestic student in the country. This means that as long as you have a residence in the United States, you are eligible to pay rates previously given only to students in Illinois and neighboring states. This new in-state policy will still be affected by the Cost Guarantee program, meaning that your tuition, fees, room and meal plan will all remain fixed at the same cost rate for four years. Graduate students wishing to take advantage of the new in-state rate can be studying toward any of WIU's 38 graduate degrees, 2 doctoral programs, or 22 post-baccalaureate certification programs.
