WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Ahead of the May 1 deadline for students to select a university for next fall, Purdue University President Mitch Daniels announced tuition will hold constant for the seventh year in a row at the West Lafayette campus. The university's current tuition freeze will continue through the 2019-20 academic year.
Daniels made the announcement Thursday morning. Tuition for the 2019-20 year will be nearly the same tuition paid in the 2012-13 year. Five graduating classes at Purdue will have earned Purdue degrees without an increase.
“A Purdue education will be less expensive in 2020 than it was in 2012. This commitment to affordability has kept Purdue attractive to prospective students and has helped save families millions of dollars,” Daniels said. “Coupled with continued investments in the quality of our academic programs, we believe Purdue is delivering on our goal of higher education at the highest proven value.”
According to Purdue University, total tuition at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus are $9,992 for Indiana residents, $28,794 for nonresidents and $30,954 for international students.
From 2013-19, Purdue university estimates students have saved $465 million through the freeze.
