MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — An out-of-state student who earns an undergraduate degree at a West Virginia college or university will qualify for a new Loyalty Tuition Program.

It was announced by the WVU College of Law Thursday.

Beginning fall 2017, students from other states who received a bachelor’s, masters or doctoral degree in the Mountain State will be eligible for the in-state tuition rate at the law school.

The Loyalty Tuition Program could help students save up to $16,000 a year.

Out-of-state students this fall make up 23% of the incoming class.

More than 70 percent of WVU College of Law students receive scholarships.

Tuition for 2017-18 will be set by the WVU Board of Governors.
