Tuition and fee rates for Indiana resident undergraduate students would increase by an average of 1.75 percent each of the next two academic years under recommendations made today by Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie to the university's Board of Trustees.

Resident tuition and fee rates at IU Bloomington and IUPUI are recommended to increase by 1.75 percent each of the next two academic years. Tuition and fee increases at IU's five regional campuses also will average 1.75, with individual campus increases ranging from 1.3 percent to 2.2 percent as IU continues to move toward standardized tuition rates at its regional campuses.

Non-resident tuition and fees at IU Bloomington would increase 2.75 percent each of the next two years; 1.75 percent at IUPUI and from 1.5 to 2.0 percent at IU's regional campuses, under the university’s recommendations.

IU's recommended increases for resident undergraduate students are below the non-binding target of 2.0 percent recommended by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education this month.

The IU Board of Trustees will hold a public meeting to hear comment on the university’s recommendations on June 5 at the IUPUI Campus Center in Indianapolis. The meeting also will be streamed live via the web. Full details on the hearing and how members of the public can participate can be found here.

The increases recommended by McRobbie, which are the lowest since the late 1970s, constitute the latest effort by IU – which, at its Bloomington campus, already offers the lowest average net cost of attendance in the Big Ten - to continue to provide an affordable IU education to its students, many of who will see no increase in tuition and fees over the next two years.
