University of Wyoming is getting more out of state students

Laramie, WY – Low tuition at the University of Wyoming, along with recent efforts to attract students from out of state, has boosted the number of students attending from other states and countries. The university reports that more than a third of its students
now hail from outside Wyoming. School officials say they've worked over the last decade to draw more out-of-state students.
Nonresident tuition for the 2010-2011 school year was about
$12,000. The national average is about $21,000.
The University of Wyoming now has about 750 students from other
countries, including 75 from Nepal. School officials say the
international students help give the entire student body a more
global perspective.
