2 percent tuition increase approved by NIU


Future Northern Illinois University students will be paying more to attend the DeKalb school after a two percent tuition increase was approved by trustees.

The increase will apply to new in-state undergraduate students and current graduate students, affecting about 28 percent of the school's population of 22,000 students. The increase brings tuition up to about $302 per credit hour for an in-state student. An out-of-state student would pay twice that amount, graduate students would pay $342 per credit hour, and law students will pay $651.

Without fees, room, and board, incoming freshman from Illinois will pay about $9,100 a year for a full load of classes.
