Indiana State University is seeking a tuition increase and a new fee that would help boost mental health services for students.
The proposed tuition hike would be about 1.9% for both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. That represents roughly $90 more per semester for full-time undergraduate Indiana resident students both years.
ISU’s trustees will consider the proposed tuition increase on June 21.
The Tribune-Star reports that a proposed $75 per semester health and wellness fee that’s also under consideration would be implemented in the 2020-2021 school year.
That fee was recommended by ISU’s Student Government Association after a favorable student referendum. The revenue would go toward increasing mental health services for students, faculty and staff on the Terre Haute campus.•
