     3    (4-a) Commencing with the two thousand twenty--two thousand twenty-one

     5  twenty-five academic year, the board of trustees of the state university
     6  may designate the state university college of arts and sciences at Pots-
     7  dam for participation in a program allowing eligible non-resident under-
     8  graduate students that reside within two hundred miles of  the  institu-
     9  tion  to  pay separate tuition rates for attendance at such institution.
    10  Such institution shall consider  out-of-state  competition,  current  or
    11  projected  levels  of  high  school  graduates  within the institution's
    12  recruitment region, and enrollment capacity and physical location of the
    13  institution, if such institution participates in the program. The  board

    19  of  enrollment  at  the  designated  institution.  The institution shall
    20  report annually to the board of trustees of the state university on  the
    21  impact of this program.
    22    §  2.  This act shall take effect immediately; and shall expire and be
    23  deemed repealed June 1, 2025.
