BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - The Indiana Commission for Higher Education has recommended
tuition and fee rate increases of no higher than 5 percent for the
state's seven public college and university systems.
The commission's executive committee recommends that none of the
increases for the next two years exceed 5 percent for Indiana and
Purdue universities and University of Southern Indiana, 4 percent
for Ball State and Ivy Tech, and 3.5 percent for Indiana State and
The recommendations are nonbinding, so the colleges and
universities can go beyond the recommendations. But they might have
to justify rates that are higher to the State Budget Committee.
Tuition rates normally would have been set by now, but were delayed because it took until Tuesday for legislators to approve a new state budget.
