Indiana University sets tuition increase after 2-year freeze

Tuition will be going up 1.4 percent for most students at Indiana University's campuses in Bloomington and Indianapolis after being frozen for the past two years.

IU trustees voted Wednesday to approve a two-year increase for undergraduate Indiana resident tuition and mandatory fees. A slightly higher increase of 1.9 percent was approved for regional campuses in Gary, Kokomo, New Albany, Richmond and South Bend.

Indiana residents at the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses will pay about $10,530 for the coming school year and $10,680 for 2018-19, The Herald-Times reported. Total student bill varies based on their specific program.

The IU increase come as Purdue University is extending its tuition freeze for a sixth year and cut a fitness fee to reduce the standard bill for West Lafayette students to just under $10,000.

Meanwhile, the Ball State University Board of Trustees on Wednesday approved a 1.25 percent tuition increase for in-state undergraduates, the school's smallest hike in more than 40 years.

The board also approved a 2 percent increase in the salary-funding pool for faculty and professional employees. An additional $180,000 will be allocated specifically for faculty promotions.
