WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Purdue Board of Trustees approved a resolution to freeze tuition for a third year. This means tuition will be frozen through the 2015-16 academic year.

The trustees first approved the freeze on tuition and most fees in May 2013 for two years, through the 2014-15 academic year.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels said administrators feel confident a tuition freeze for a third year can be accomplished. He said this means the students who entered Purdue in the fall of 2012 will never see an increase in tuition.

Final tuition and fee decisions for fiscal years 2015-16 and 2016-17 will be made in May 2015, once state appropriations and other funding variables are known.

Daniels said the university will continue to make student affordability a top priority.
