HAYS, Kan. (AP) _ Fort Hays State has been collecting about $1.5 million a year from the tuition that students in China pay to attend Fort Hays' classes at universities in China.

The Kansas City Star reports ( ) Fort Hays State has sent faculty members to two Chinese universities where about 3,500 Chinese students are taking courses leading to U.S. bachelor's degrees. Students in the People's Republic of China pay to take courses for their Chinese degree while enrolled in a separate track for their Fort Hays coursework.

Fort Hays charges those Chinese students more for classes than Kansas students pay, but less than non-Kansas residents who attend the Hays campus in western Kansas. The China students also pay an international fee of about $30 per credit hour.
