PURDUE UNIVERSITY, Ind. (WLFI) -- There will be a slight increase in tuition for the Purdue University regional campuses.
Starting in the academic seasons of 2019 to 2021, students attending Purdue Fort Wayne and Purdue Northwest will see a 1.65% increase in tuition.
The Fort Wayne campus will introduce two additional charges for international students and students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. International tuition will go up $24.90 per credit hour for undergraduates and $31.57 per credit hour for graduate students. The College of Visual and Performing Arts will have a new differential fee. There will be an extra $25 per credit hour charge for undergraduates and a $31.57 charge for graduate students.
Purdue University Assistant Treasurer, Jim Almond, said the Visual and Performing Arts fees will help offset the high cost equipment and resources needed for classes.
“They tend to be smaller classes, a lot of equipment and technology investments, productions. it's just generally more expensive," explained Almond.
The Purdue Board of Trustees will review and vote on the tuition and fee proposals on June 14th.
