Local News

DEKALB, Ill. (WTVO) — Northern Illinois University has pledged to cover first-year tuition fees to qualifying students.

As part of its “Huskie Pledge,” the university says Illinois high school students who graduate this Spring with a 3.0 GPA could be eligible to receive the grant, if the student’s household income is less than $75,000.

If students keep their grades up, the grant could be extended for up to four more years.

The program is supported by funds from the State of Illinois.
