Purdue University will freeze tuition and most fees at current levels for the next two years for students at the West Lafayette campus. The last year without a tuition increase was 1976. 

“I have found a broad consensus among faculty and staff to put the interests of our students and their families first,” President Mitch Daniels said. “It’s time for us to hit the pause button on Bold move puts Purdue students, families first tuition increases. Our students and their families deserve a high-value education that they can afford. We will fit our spending to their budgets — not the other way around. Purdue is a national leader in the value of its degrees, and we intend to increase that value further.” 

Rates for 2013-14 will be $9,992 per year for Indiana residents, which is unchanged except for the previously approved increase in the student activity and student fitness and wellness fees. Nonresident tuition and fees will be $28,794. International students will pay $30,794. The tuition freeze applies to Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. Tuition at each of Purdue’s three regional campuses is determined separately.
