U of I Tuition Increase Smallest In 19 Years

University of Illinois trustees have raised tuition for in-state
students starting school this fall by 1.7 percent. It is the smallest increase
in almost two decades.
Under Thursday’s unanimous vote, undergraduate tuition at the flagship
Urbana-Champaign campus will increase $198 to $11,834 a year. Chicago campus
undergraduates will see an increase of $174 to $10,406. And tuition in
Springfield will increase $157.50 to $9,247.50.
Increases won’t affect current students. State law guarantees students at
public universities will pay the same tuition for four years.
The coming increase is the smallest in terms of percentage since 1994. Recent
increases have been as high as 9.5 percent.
Trustees also raised housing costs to $9,979 a year in Urbana-Champaign,
$10,261 in Chicago and $10,350 in Springfield. (AP)
