Purdue University trustees approved a proposal today to freeze tuition rates for the third straight year.
Other universities in the state say they are keeping an eye on Purdue's proposal but it is not affecting their policies.
IU officials are skipping around the idea that this freeze is in the shadow of Purdue University’s recent tuition announcement.
The House version of the bill adds language instituting a tuition freeze for combat veterans.
Purdue University announced last week it would freeze tuition for two years, but IU says it will make decisions based on its own needs.
Compared with other universities, the tuition freeze IU announced last month is more restrictive.
