(Bloomington, Ind.) - The Indiana University Board of Trustees votes to raise tuition for all its campuses beginning next year.
The board voted Wednesday to increase non-resident tuition by 2.75 percent each of the next two years at the Bloomington campus. IU President Michael McRobbie says it is the school’s lowest increase in 30 years.
"We have heard -- and we share -- the public's concerns over college affordability. As we developed our budget for the coming biennium, we considered every option that would allow us to recommend to our trustees the lowest possible tuition increase over the next two years to ensure the continuing affordability of an IU education,” McRobbie said.
IU says that tuition at its Bloomington campus is already the lowest average net cost of attendance in the Big Ten.
Non-resident tuition will increase 1.75 percent at IUPUI and from 1.5 percent to two percent at IU's regional campuses.
Costs for resident undergraduate students will increase by less than two percent. According to the school, tuition and mandatory fees for Indiana resident students at the Bloomington campus will increase from $10,033 in 2012-13 to $10,209 in 2013-14.
