IU Trustees Approve 1.75% Tuition Increase

IU trustees discuss its health care plans during their meeting Thursday.

Indiana University Trustees approved Wednesday increases of an average of 1.75 percent for each of the next two academic years.

As reported earlier, the increase is slightly less than the 2 percent increase the state Commission for Higher Education recommended.

However, out-of-state students on the Bloomington campus will be charged more. Their tuition is set to go up 2.75 percent in each of the next two years.

Several other institutions are also considering raising tuition next year.

Ivy Tech Community College officials plan to vote Thursday on an 8 percent tuition increase, which amounts to $5 per credit hour each semester for the next two years.

Indiana State University and Ball State University  are planning a 2 percent increase.

Purdue University approved last month a freeze on tuition and most fees at its main campus in West Lafayette, although students at its regional campus will still see 2 percent jump in tuition.
