    2. For undergraduate students who are children or spouses of graduates of NDUS institutions, a tuition rate equal to 150 percent of the resident rate, regardless of residency; and

    3. Such other special rates as may be established by agreements entered into under N.D.C.C. 15-10-28, N.D.C.C. ch. 15-10.1 or under regional higher education compacts.
