Warren Wilson College announced it will offer free tuition to incoming North Carolina students. The Warren Wilson College North Carolina Free Tuition Plan will allow in-state students who are eligible for federal or state need-based aid to attend the school for free.

Warren Wilson College president Lynn Morton also announced the Milepost One program, which will award full-tuition scholarships to 25 incoming students. The school said students whose family income levels are equal to or below $125,000 a year are eligible for the program. 

Janelle Holmboe, vice president for enrollment and marketing at the college, thinks the programs will diversify the student population. 

“Since I arrived in 2015, there’s been an opportunity for Warren Wilson College to expand its presence in North Carolina,” Holmboe said. “North Carolina is an incredibly diverse state, and I believe this initiative opens opportunities for our local students to attend Warren Wilson College.”
