    In recent years, Peru State incorporated the â??One Rate, Any Stateâ?? declaration. This declaration encourages many students from any state to apply, enroll, and study at Peru State because whether you reside in or out of Nebraska, tuition and fees at this college remain the same. Thatâ??s over $20,000 in savings! Peru State offers numerous scholarshipsâ??from art to music, to a recommendation sent in from your high school counselorâ??to an ACT score of 25 or higher, there is a scholarship for anyone. Itâ??s hard to enter Peru without any financial aid.

    I think all prices seem fair except for the meal plan. There really isn't a cheap option and I don't eat near as many meals as what I have to pay for. Some guys might, but as a girl I don't!

    More affordable than the University, and definately feel I'm getting a great education. Instructors are interactive via online classes, and help with with any questions.
