WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University announced Monday it will keep West Lafayette campus tuition frozen at 2012-13 levels through at least 2022-23. This will mark 10 continuous years of no increases in tuition costs. According to Purdue, President Mitch Daniels first announced that the university would not increase tuition in spring 2013.
“We said very early on that we believe strongly that our students and their families deserve a high-value education that they can afford and that we will fit our spending to their budgets — not the other way around. Purdue is a national leader in the value of its degrees, and we intend to increase that value further,” Daniels said. “Our story remains the same. As long as we are balancing our operating budget, growing our faculty, and investing in necessary projects, we see no good reason to charge our students more. Our commitment to affordability has helped save families millions of dollars and, coupled with prioritizing our investments, we continue to believe that Purdue is delivering higher education at the highest proven value.”
To be formally approved by Purdue trustees in late spring 2021 per state statute, base undergraduate tuition at Purdue will remain at $9,992 per year for Indiana residents and $28,794 for out-of-state students through 2022-23.
