EIU Slightly Raises TuitionFriday, 1 March 2013
Eastern Illinois University approves its lowest annual tuition rate increase for new students since 1993.
President Bill Perry says the increase, which equals about $4.00 more per semester hour, is the second lowest increase at EIU since 1979.
EIU’s resident tuition rate will increase from $279 to $283 per semester credit hour for students entering the university during the 2013-2014 school year.
This means that those with an average 15-course academic load will pay $4,245 per semester, an increase of $60.00.
Incoming students will be able to lock in the new tuition rate for four continuous academic years.
