This past Monday, Washington State Community College (WSCC) announced at a press conference hosted by Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor John Carey that the institution is now offering in-state tutition rates for eligible West Virginia residents. The 50% tuition reduction will directly benefit citizens in the communities of Brooke, Hancock, Jackson, Marshall, Ohio, Pleasants, Ritchie, Tyler, Wetzel, Wirt and Wood counties.
 
Washington State's current student population consits of 167 West Virginia residents, of which nearly 65% are paying the full out-of-state tuition rates. This means that they're going to go from spending $278 per credit hour to just $139 per credit hour. So for the average student taking fifteen credit hours per semester, they'll see a savings of $2,085 for each semester, which totals more than $8,300 over the course of earning a two-year associate degree. With the announcement of this magnitude, college officials anticipate significant growth in its enrollment numbers.
