Verbatim: IPFW agreement with Midwest Student Exchange Program

IPFW issued the following news release Friday, April 14:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) officials announced today an agreement with the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) to offer more affordable tuition to prospective out-of-state new students in the fall of 2017. The program will be offered at the undergraduate level.

More than 100 colleges and universities in nine Midwestern states take part in the MSEP, which is the Midwest's largest multi-state tuition reciprocity program. These institutions are in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Through the MSEP, public institutions charge students no more than 150% of the in-state resident tuition rate for specific programs. Private institutions offer a 10% reduction in tuition rates. Prospective students must be enrolling as a non-resident student at a participating MSEP college of university to receive the tuition discount.

"The MSEP allows the university to establish an identity throughout the Midwest region that highlights our academic quality, small class sizes, and globally recognized Purdue degrees," said Carl Drummond, vice chancellor for academic affairs,

David Peterson, director of financial aid, said, "Our participation in the Midwest Student Exchange Program allows more students to benefit from the quality educational experiences offered by IPFW."
