INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s higher education commissioner is urging college students and their parents to attend public meetings about next year’s tuition rates.
Colleges and universities hold public meetings on proposed tuition rates before their boards vote on the final numbers. Higher Education Commissioner Teresa Lubbers says the meetings are a chance for parents and students to tell schools how the tuition and fees will affect them.
Purdue University has suggested raising tuition 5 percent and is holding its public meeting Monday (July 13) in West Lafayette. Indiana University has proposed a rate hike of 4.6 percent next year at its main campus, and has scheduled its meeting Thursday (July 16) in Indianapolis.
