STILLWATER, Okla. – The idea to offer flat-rate tuition at the University of Oklahoma is catching on elsewhere.
Last week the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education approved the tuition plans for all 25 public colleges.
Three more state campuses say they’re moving to the flat-rate, including Oklahoma State University, Langston University, and the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Chickasha.
The flat-rate tuition allows undergrads who enroll in 12 to 18 hours to pay a flat-rate based on 15 credit hours per semester.
It gives students an incentive to graduate sooner, and encourages students to take summer school to get in the required hours to stay on track and get their degree in four years.
