SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved several tuition programs aimed at recruiting students from outside the state.

The board said Wednesday that the early approval of the specialized tuition rates will give universities more time to recruit attendees from nearby states. The regents normally set tuition in March.

One program will grant the equivalent of the South Dakota resident tuition rate for first-time freshmen and transfers from Nebraska who attend Dakota State University, Northern State University, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, South Dakota State University or the University of South Dakota.

The board also approved the resident tuition rate for new Black Hills State University attendees from Colorado and Montana.

The new rates start with the 2018-19 school year.
