IU President Proposes 2-Year Tuition Freeze
Indiana University President Michael McRobbie is calling for a two-year tuition freeze for in-state students attending the university’s Bloomington campus.
Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers says McRobbie’s proposal to freeze tuition for in-state students at the Bloomington campus and raise tuition by an average of 1.65% for the other regional campuses is in line with the recommendations the commission made last week.
Lubbers says she’s also pleased the school will begin looking at create a flat rate tuition, instead of paying per course, for all regional campuses.
"That’s especially important as we’re trying to push on-time completion as a state as a way to save money and time," says Lubbers. "Banded tuition will be very important."
The IU Board of Trustees will hear public comments on the recommendation at their June 3 meeting in Indianapolis.
