Tennessee-based Austin Peay State University is offering in-state tuition rates for Indiana residents. Hoosiers who live within 250 miles of the university qualify for the discounted rate for both undergraduate and graduate programs.

The university says high school students who have a 22 ACT or 1020 SAT score or higher are also eligible for an additional Provost Scholarship, which brings tuition rates within a few dollars of the university's in-state rate. Dr. Rex Gandy, provost and vice president for academic affairs at APSU, says the program, known as 250R, will help expand and diversify the university by bringing in students from different locations and cultures.

"We already offer a variety of high quality academic programs and when you combine this with our highly affordable in-state tuition rates, it not only opens the door for out-of-state students to an option they may not have otherwise considered, it will help us further diversify our student body, which is an important part of the academic experience for our students," said Gandy.

Austin Peay State University is located about 50 miles northwest of Nashville on the Tennessee/Kentucky border. Click here for more information on the program.
