Bearcat Advantage

What is Bearcat Advantage?

Bearcat Advantage is an opportunity for out-of-state students to earn in-state tuition rates. This program can save new students more than $7,500!

Bearcat advantage provided an affordable opportunity to attend a university outside my home state. I'm pursuing a degree I'm interested in, and saving myself thousands of dollars.
