The University of Southern Indiana's Board of Trustees held a meeting on Thursday regarding a tuition increase.
USI Board of Trustees unanimously approved the tuition increase for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years.
Included was a per-semester credit-hour fee increase for 2013-2014 to $211.93 for Indiana resident undergraduate students; $309.27 for Indiana resident graduate students; $507.09 for non-resident undergraduate students; and $609.84 for non-resident graduate students.
The 2014-2015 per-semester credit-hour fee will increase to $221.22 for Indiana resident undergraduate students; $324.84 for Indiana resident graduate students; $532.56 for non-resident undergraduate students; and $640.46 for non-resident graduate students.
