Coppin State University to Offer In-State Tuition Rates to Many Students From Outside Maryland

Historically Black Coppin State University in Baltimore announced new full-time undergraduate degree-seeking students admitted to the university from more than 30 states and U.S. territories outside of Maryland, will be eligible to pay in-state tuition upon enrollment. The proposal will take effect in Fall 2024.

For the 2022-23 academic year, tuition at Coppin State was $6,904 for Maryland residents and $13,560 for students from outside Maryland.

During the 2022-2023 academic year, 85 percent of students enrolled at Coppin State resided in Maryland, and 15 percent of students resided in another state. Offering in-state tuition for some out-of-state students will allow Coppin State to expand its enrollment footprint, increase its recruitment of out-of-state students, and strengthen relationships in states where students could have interest in attending an HBCU, either as a first-time or transfer student.

Prospective students living in the following states and U.S. territories are eligible for the in-state tuition incentive: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Most of these states are not close to Maryland so students would most likely have to pay room and board. In the 2022-23 academic year, on-campus room and board costs were $11,746.
