IOWA CITY, Iowa — The South Dakota Board of Regents is considering a proposal that would extend in-state, undergraduate tuition rates to new Iowa students at four of its public universities.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen ( ) reports that the board is scheduled to vote this week on the proposal that would affect Dakota State University in Madison, Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota State University in Brookings and University of South Dakota in Vermillion.

Officials at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City and Black Hills State University in Spearfish say they don’t believe joining in on the proposal would affect their enrollment rates.

University of South Dakota spokesman Scott Pohlson says the state already has a reciprocity agreement with Minnesota, but that the Iowa proposal would be “one-way only.”
