BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - In an effort to be more competitive, Southern University will be waiving out of state fees for all incoming freshmen who qualify starting in the Fall of 2015.

To qualify, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.7 and a composite ACT score of 20 among other things.

Chancellor Flandus McClinton says it's part of the university's effort to "positively impact SUBR's recruitment, retention, and graduation rates."

Officials say the waiver is worth about $33,000 over four years.
