Nevada issues tuition refunds

Refunds will be issued to approximately 5,700 students who attended Nevada public colleges between 1995 and the present, after the regents determined that the students were unfairly charged out-of-state tuition. State law requires that students be residents of the state for only six months to qualify for in-state tuition. A student had charged that board policy requiring 12-month residency for in-state status was in violation of state law. The refunds could total more than $4.6 million, according to the regents.
