WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Medical School says starting next year the school will start admitting out-of-state students and expand the number of students it enrolls.

The state’s only public medical school currently enrolls about 125 students per year, all from Massachusetts. Enrollment will be expanded by 12 next year and 13 in 2017 for an enrollment cap of 150. All but 25 of those slots will be reserved for Massachusetts residents.

Chancellor Michael Collins tells The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1IZL08a ) that accepting out-of-state applicants is expected to increase the diversity and quality of candidates.

He says out-of-state students will also pay more than double the in-state tuition of more than $25,000, helping the school’s bottom line.
