ISU board raises tuition, room and board rates

NORMAL (AP) — Tuition, fees, dining rates and residence hall rates are rising at Illinois State University.

The university's board on Friday approved the increases, which will affect new freshmen and transfer students for the 2013-2014 school year.

ISU spokesman Eric Jome says the combined increases mean it will cost a new in-state freshman just over $22,200 a year, with about $10,200 of that going toward tuition.

Tuition rates are increasing about 2 percent over last year. Housing is up 3 percent and dining rates go up by 2.5 percent.

The tuition rate will hold stable through summer of 2017, meaning it will be the same for incoming students during the four-year period. State law guarantees incoming students at Illinois universities set tuition rates for four years.
