Purdue University is set to extend its tuition freeze into a third year. President Mitch Daniels, who made the freeze one of his first announcements upon taking the reins of the school, will seek formal approval of the move at Friday’s Board of Trustees meeting.

On Tuesday, the president was quick to say he couldn’t predict how long the policy would last, however.
