WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (AP) - Purdue University's trustees have approved extending the West Lafayette campus' tuition freeze for a third straight year.
WLFI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1sAtwrx ) the trustees' action Friday morning means tuition will be frozen at the campus through the 2015-16 academic year.
The trustees first approved the freeze on tuition and most fees in May 2013 for two years, through the 2014-15 academic year.
Purdue President Mitch Daniels had asked the trustees to extend the tuition freeze for a third straight year. He says the trustees' approval means students who entered Purdue in the fall of 2012 will never see an increase in tuition.
Daniels says the university will continue to make affordability for students a top priority.
