(Bloomington, IN)  --  It's going to be more expensive for students to attend the University of Indiana next fall. 

The Bloomington Herald-Times reports university trustees on Wednesday approved a 2.5 percent tuition increase for in-state students each of the next two school years at all campuses statewide. The hike will take tuition and fees at IU to $10,680 per year. 

The rate increase was beyond the the Indiana Commission for Higher Education’s nonbinding recommendation of 1.65 percent.

Out-of-state students at IU's Bloomington campus will pay three percent more the next two years.

According to the Herald-Times, IU's higher tuition will be less than seven of the other schools in the Big Ten Conference. 

Purdue University's tuition has been frozen at just under $10,000 since 2013.

Indiana University Board of Trustees Chairman Michael Mirro says IU needs to raise tuition because it has fewer out-of-state students.
