Mesa State College is urging current and future in–state undergraduate students to take advantage of a tuition voucher program. It's called the College Oppurtunity Fund. The voucher is part of a statewide initiative to boost participation in higher education.
The voucher, estimated to be $80 per credit hour, will not decrease the student's share of tuition. Instead, it is intended to replace the per–student subsidy that Colorado has previously paid to its public colleges and universities.
The vouchers can be applied to up to 145 undergraduate credit hours, but students must sign up online or be forced to pay the portion of their tuition the voucher would have covered.
