The leadership of the Nebraska State College System wants to cut tuition costs for students who take the system’s online classes. But if I understand the story correctly, the cut is $5 per credit hour.

The Lincoln Journal Star has the details.

Chancellor Paul Turman said in a statement the plan fits into the state college’s core pillars of affordability and accessibility.

“Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and often balance competing work and family commitments, making earning their degree challenging,” Turman said.

“That is why Chadron, Peru and Wayne State College are removing as many barriers as possible to enable students to complete their degrees,” he added.
