Ball State Board sets tuition rates for next two school years

MUNCIE, Ind. (WPTA21) – A vote on Wednesday by the Ball State University Board of Trustees has set the tuition rate for students at the school over the next two years.

Those rates will rise by 1.25 percent for both 2019-20 and 2020-21, university officials said.

They noted the tuition rate will remain lowest among institutions in the Mid-American Conference.

“Our ability to keep tuition rate increases at 2% or less since 2013 is no accident,” Coard Chair Rick Hall said. “We have been entrusted with the stewardship of public funds and Indiana families’ investments, and we take that responsibility to heart. Our prudent fiscal management has enabled us to keep tuition increases low and provide our students with high quality, affordable education.”

In May, Purdue University Fort Wayne announced tuition rates would climb 1.65 percent in each of the next two school years.

Purdue University in West Lafayette has seen a tuition freeze, while Indiana University in Bloomington said last week that in-state students would see an increase of 2.5 percent next year (3 percent for out-of-state attendees).
