INDIANOLA — Simpson College in Indianola says it will cover tuition costs of Iowa students whose families have an adjusted gross income of $60,000 or less.

The college announced its plan Monday, with Simpson President Jay Simmons saying in a statement, “There has been a lot of talk about making college affordable. We decided it was time to take action.” Gary Steinke, president of the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, say no other Iowa private college has such a program.
