EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana will conduct a public hearing at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, to solicit public comment on proposed tuition and mandatory fees for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 academic years. The public hearing will take place in Forum Two of the Wright Administration Building.
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 $6,898 in 2015-2016, an increase of approximately $201. In 2016-2017, tuition would be set at $7,105, an increase of approximately $207.
USI President Linda L. M. Bennett said the increases are expected to meet ongoing operational expenses.
