State College Information... Tuition Free Guarantee if you are Pell Grant eligible!!! (Fill out your FAFSA ASAP if you have not already, so that you know if you qualify!)
This information is from Wayne State, but this also applies to Chadron State and Peru State!
The Nebraska State Colleges have announced a new Tuition Guarantee that ensures Pell-qualified Nebraska students can attend Wayne State College tuition-free! The program takes effect in Fall 2021 and applies to returning and new undergraduate students at Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State Colleges.
“The State College Tuition Guarantee opens doors to students who aspire to earn a four-year college degree, but are concerned about taking on significant debt,” said Dr. Paul Turman, Chancellor of the Nebraska State College System. “This program eliminates that barrier by providing access to a tuition-free education. This straight-forward approach will offer students, especially first-generation students, a clear path to high-demand careers in Nebraska.”
State College Tuition Guarantee
Qualified first-time freshman and transfer students pursuing an undergraduate degree will receive a combination of federal grants, state or private grants, college remissions, or College Foundation scholarships to fill any tuition gap left after the Pell Grant. The State College Tuition Guarantee does not cover additional costs such as room and board, books, and fees. However, the student's private or community scholarships will not be considered when providing support to cover tuition costs.
To qualify, students must:
Be a Nebraska resident
Be a first-time freshman or an incoming transfer
Be granted Admission
Be Pell Grant eligible as determined by the FAFSA
Enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester, including one or more on-campus classes
Students must complete the FAFSA on or before April 1 to receive priority consideration. The Guarantee is renewable for up to four years as long as the student remains Pell-eligible, in good academic standing, and continues as a full-time on-campus student.
