FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Purdue University Fort Wayne students may start paying a little more in tuition costs.

Purdue University announced Thursday its plans to increase tuition at the Fort Wayne campus in each of the next two years, according to The Journal Gazette.

Each year, tuition will increase by 1.65%.

The proposed increase will raise undergraduate tuition for residents to $8,589 for this fall and $8,730 in fall 2020. Nonresidents will see tuition increase to $20,622, then $20,961. The configured rates are for those attending the university for a full academic year, and based on 15 credit hours/semester.

A public hearing to discuss the planned increase is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29 at 11 a.m. on the West Lafayette campus. Videoconferencing is available in Room 176 of the Science Building at Purdue University Fort Wayne.

The university is planning for a identical rate increase for the Purdue Northwest campus as well.

  1. Interesting. We can get coverage from WOWO for tuition cost increases but nothing about how Indiana leads the nation in hospitalization costs for patients covered privately as compared to Medicare covered individuals.

    • You’ve made this point on a couple of articles now. Where did you see this story? It’s not a case of us not wanting to cover it, it’s a case of us not being told about it.

      • A story on WANE.COM dated 5/10/19. They were covering a NYT’s piece that included how Parkview Health charged private insurance companies about four times what the federal Medicare program paid for the same care. If that’s accurate it seems a bit unfair. I realize there’s differing opinions as to why that is, it just seems like a relevant topic. Healthcare high costs are highlighted in the news frequently. It would be nice to see some in depth analysis showing the many sides to this issue.
