BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - With the state budget unsettled possibly until the end of this
month, Indiana University trustees likely must wait before setting
tuition rates for the school year that starts Aug. 31.
The board of trustees will meet on Thursday and Friday next week in Gary, and administrators had hoped members could vote on salaries and tuition then.
But trustees must wait on the General Assembly to pass a state budget. Legislators will go into special session Thursday with the goal of passing a new state budget before the current one expires June 30.
IU chief financial officer Neil Theobald says a special session will likely be called in July to set tuition and salaries.
Roger Thompson, IU's vice provost for enrollment management, said parents of students have been anxiously calling the school asking about tuition.
