Purdue, With Tuition Freeze, Now Majority Out-of-State

August 3, 2015

Purdue University is currently in the fourth year of a tuition freeze about which President Mitch Daniels has boasted widely. During the time that the freeze has been in place, the number of in-state undergraduates has dropped by 1,228 and the number of out-of-state students has gone up by 336, The Indianapolis Star reported. With those changes, a majority of Purdue students (including graduate and professional students, which were already majority from outside Indiana) are now from outside the state. Out-of-state students pay much more in tuition, and those funds have become much needed during the tuition freeze. Tuition for a year at Purdue is 10,002 for Indiana residents, $29,000 for out-of-stater from the rest of the United States, and $31,000 for international students.
