Purdue's tuition costs are frozen for the seventh consecutive year
Purdue University President Mitch Daniels has announced plans to hold tuition constant on the West Lafayette campus for a seventh year in a row, extending the tuition freeze through the 2019-20 academic year.
This means students at the West Lafayette campus will be paying nearly the same in tuition and fees as they were in 2012-13, and five graduating classes will have earned their Purdue degrees without ever having a tuition increase. When combined with room and board rates that have been held flat or lowered and potential textbook savings through Purdue's Amazon partnership, current students' total cost of attendance is lower than in 2012-13.
