ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A small historically Black college in South Carolina is offering all full-time students free tuition for the upcoming 2021-22 academic year.

Clinton College President Lester McCorn made the announcement last week for qualifying full-time students at the school in Rock Hill.

News outlets report the school had already made the commitment to slash fall tuition by 50% for its students, and offer every student a new tablet.

But now the college is making tuition free as the school wants to make sure their students get a college education despite financial hardships brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
