VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - The state Board of Regents has approved a proposal to allow resident tuition for out-of-state students who attend the South Dakota public university where one of their parents received a degree.

The board passed the measure at its meeting on Wednesday for incoming freshman or transfer students.

System Vice President of Finance and Administration Monte Kramer says the proposal will help attract students to South Dakota. A report to the board says the move could also help make donors and alumni happy.

Students would be required to meet certain ongoing criteria to keep the in-state tuition rate depending on the institution they attend.

Kramer says allowing children of alumni to attend a public South Dakota university of their choice would make it apply to too many incoming students.
