Topeka Kansas University wants the Jayhawks Generations legacy tuition discount to be permanent.
The scholarship program was designed to encourage out-of-state freshmen whose parents or grandparents are KU graduates to enroll at KU.
In the plan, a qualifying student receives a 12 percent tuition discount from the out-of-state student rate if the student received an ACT score of 26 to 29. Students scoring 30 or higher receive a 20 percent discount.
The Kansas Board of Regents approved the program on a temporary basis for the fall of 2009.
The regents will consider KU’s request at its meeting next week.
KU has 123 students in the Jayhawk Generations program.
