Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Ball State University Board of Trustees has approved a 2-percent tuition increase for each of the next two years.

The 20,000-student school says the increase approved Thursday is the lowest at Ball State in 37 years. Tuition for undergraduates will increase by $90 per semester next school year and $92 in 2014-15.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education recommended no more than a 2-percent increase.

Indiana University Trustees approved a 1.75-percent tuition increase Wednesday, and Ivy Tech Community College trustees approved a more than 8-percent tuition increase Thursday. Purdue has frozen tuition on its main campus.

The Ball State Trustees also approved the 2013-14 budget including a 3-percent increase in salaries for faculty and a 2.5-percent increase for professional staff in its meeting.
