Ten days ago, it was Indiana State University announcing cutbacks in tuition. Monday, Indiana University followed suit.
IU president Michael McRobbie announced the school would cut back summer school tuition 25 percent for undergraduates with Indiana residency. Out-of-state undergraduates would receive an equivalent tuition cut.
The potential savings? From the university release:
For those students who take a full academic course load in the summer, the tuition reductions will result in a savings ranging from more than $700 at IU’s regional campuses to about $1,000 at IUPUI and $1,050 at IU Bloomington.
Indiana higher education commissioner Teresa Lubbers attended the announcement in Indianapolis, and was quoted in the university statement as being appreciative of the IU plan.
We’ll have more on this story later.
