With the rising costs of higher education, its important for families (and counselors) to know that options are available for helping make fees more affordable. What many families do not realize is that it's possible to pay in-state tuition rates, even if a student is a resident of a different state. Individual colleges offer waivers to students who meet certain requirements. Additionally, through the Southern Regional Education Board's Academic Common Market residents of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas can attend certain public HBCUs if they are enrolled in a specific academic programs/ major.
