Members of the Purdue University Board of Trustee's executive committee approved a 2 percent tuition and fee increase for IPFW students for the next two years. The committee, acting for the whole board, approved tuition and fee rates for Purdue's main campus in West Lafayette and its regional campuses during a meeting Wednesday that was streamed live at IPFW. All members present voted in favor of the 2 percent increase for regional campuses and a tuition freeze for West Lafayette students. One committee member was absent. Fees for students attending the West Lafayette campus will also increase by a total of $102 over two years. The increase for IPFW translates into a $10 increase in tuition and fees over two years, bringing the cost per credit hour to about $260.
