Out of State Colleges

Students fear looking at colleges and universities out-of-state because it will cost far too much.  Well, there is good news and bad news about looking out of state.

  • Bad News
    • Yes you will have to pay a higher tuition while going out of state
  • Good News
    • Michigan is a participating member of the Midwest Higher Education Compact (MHEC) with the Midwest Student Exchange Program, so you are eligible for a tuition break simply for being a resident of Michigan

Now you may be asking “What does this all mean for me?” Well the answer is simple.  If you go to a participating school you can take advantage of many of the perks involved with the MHEC highlighted on this sheet here: MHEC Flyer.  You can also visit the MHEC site to learn more about the exchange program by clicking here.
