LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Out-of-state fees for most online degree programs and graduate-certificate programs at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette are being cut by more than half in Spring 2017.

KATC-TV (https://bit.ly/2dt2i5l ) reports the university finalized the rate decrease last month.

Under the reworked fee schedule, students enrolled in an online degree program will pay the same rate - whether they live in Louisiana or outside of the state.

For example, a student residing in Texas and enrolling in six online credit hours for the Doctor of Nursing Practice program will pay $3,259, a 58 percent reduction from the current $7,835 rate.

Director of Distance Learning Luke Dowden says the new competitive price will enable more students to access the university’s “first-rate faculty and curricula.”
