WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Tuition is staying put for a ninth year in a row at Purdue.

President Mitch Daniels announcing over the weekend he and university leaders will not be raising tuition again — meaning students in the 2021-2022 school year will be paying the same $9,992 for tuition and fees as students in 2012.

Out-of-state tuition is also holding steady at just shy of $29,000. Daniels added that the $10,030 rates for room and board are not increasing either. Those rates are holding steady they were actually lowered between the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.

More than 44,000 students attend Purdue, which the school’s highest enrollment ever. 17,000 of those students are from the state of Indiana.

Indiana University trustees approved a 3.5-percent tuition increase last week, which equates to about an extra $375 a semester to attend classes at the Bloomington campus. They are also raising room and board rates by 3.8-percent.
