ISU freezes tuition rates for 2019-20 school year

NORMAL, Ill. (WEEK) — The Illinois State University Board of Trustees is freezing tuition and room and board rates for incoming freshmen in the 2019-20 school year.

With a $10 hike in mandatory fees, incoming undergraduate students will pay $384.13 per credit hour. The fee hike mainly goes towards upgrading the university’s technology and facilities. The rate will remain in place for those students through 2023.

The university raised tuition by 3.75 percent for incoming students last year. Tuition was frozen in 2017 amidst the state government’s two-year budget impasse, which took a toll on higher education institutions across Illinois.

The board also improved replacing components of the central air distribution system at Watterson Towers and completing a $9.5 million renovation project at the Bone Student Center.
