Wayne State reduces tuition for Ontario students

November 8, 2013

Detroit's Wayne State University is offering reduced tuition for students from Ontario and the neighbouring Great Lakes states, just a few months after uWindsor slashed tuition fees for its US neighbors. Out-of-state undergraduates, including those from Ontario, who qualify for the tuition award at Wayne State will pay the same tuition as Michigan students, plus 10%. Wayne State Provost Margaret Winters says it's a way to deal with falling enrolment and to raise the university’s profile outside southeast Michigan. uWindsor Assistant VP Recruitment and Enrolment Dave Bussiere says, "it's a positive thing for Windsor-Essex that we're both dedicated to the region."
