The University of Southern Indiana will conduct a public forum to solicit public comment on proposed tuition and mandatory fees for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years.
The public hearing will take place at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 7 in the Griffin Center on the USI campus.
Under Indiana law, each state educational institution is required to set tuition and fees for a two-year period following the adoption of the state’s biennial budget and to hold a public hearing before the adoption of any proposed rate increases.
The University proposes that tuition for a full-time, in-state, undergraduate student be set at $7,460 in 2017-2018, an increase of approximately $355. In 2018-2019, tuition would be set at $7,829, an increase of approximately $369. The tuition increase includes an increase in the technology fee of $2.50 per credit hour in 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.
Expected uses of the increased student fees are to meet on-going operational expenses.
