PURDUE’S 12th YEAR OF FROZEN TUITION
In February 2023, President Mung Chiang and the Purdue University Board of Trustees announced a 12th consecutive tuition freeze, meaning students at the West Lafayette campus will see no increase in tuition through at least the 2024-25 academic year. While student loan debt has climbed across the country, Purdue’s commitment to affordability and value has helped students and their families cumulatively save more than $1 billion since the tuition freeze began in 2012-13. Tuition will once again remain at $9,992 for in-state students and $28,794 for out-of-state students.
