The Indiana University Board of Trustees approved tuition and fee increases for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years during a special tuition forum held in Indianapolis Wednesday.
At IU Bloomington and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, the university’s two core campuses, resident undergraduate tuition and fee rates will increase by 1.4 percent each of the next two academic years. The increase equals $145.46 at IU Bloomington and $128.66 at IUPUI for the 2017-18 academic year.
Tuition and fee increases for resident and nonresident undergraduate students at IU's five regional campuses (IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU South Bend and IU Southeast) will increase 1.9 percent each of the next two academic years, which equals $134.36 for the 2017-18 academic year.
Nonresident undergraduate tuition at IU Bloomington will increase 1.75 percent each of the next two years.
Before the increases Wednesday afternoon, tuition and fees had remained flat at IU Bloomington since 2015.
IU says the tuition increase will help fund student success programming -- focusing on academics, personal finance, and health and well-being.
