The Southern University System recently entered into an agreement with the Ministry of Education of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis to collaboratively provide residents of the Caribbean islands with affordable higher education opportunities at Southern University and A&M College and Southern University at New Orleans, beginning with the fall semester of 2024.
The Ministry will recommend students to Southern for application. Once students have successfully completed Southern’s admissions process, they will be able to pay in-state tuition fees while in good academic standing each fall and spring semester (2.75 GPA for undergraduate programs; 3.0 GPA for graduate programs). All students will be given opportunities to earn scholarships that are awarded in accordance with published Southern scholarship guidelines. Students from Saint Kitts and Nevis will be eligible for on-campus housing and other Southern University-affiliated accommodations.
“The Southern University System continues to expand its global footprint by advancing its mission of providing an equitable, accessible education to anyone who desires such,” said Dennis J. Shields, president-chancellor. “We are honored to have this agreement with St. Kitts and Nevis, which will provide boundless opportunities for not only academic success but also cultural engagement. We look forward to greeting these students on our campuses and having them be a part of the ever-expanding Southern University community.”
