Trustee board increases SIU-Carbondale tuition by 3 percent

Southern Illinois University’s board of trustees has voted to increase tuition next year at the school’s Carbondale campus by 3 percent.
    
The vote Thursday means the price of tuition for new students will increase $264 to $9,099. The increase will not affect existing students.
    
The cost of 15 mandatory student fees will remain the same, while room-and-board fees will increase 1.9 percent to $10,186. That brings the total in-state cost of an SIU education to $22,417.
    
The board also boosted several fees paid by students attending SIU-Edwardsville.
    
The changes are expected to take place in the fall 2016. It includes an increase in housing occupancy rates, an information technology fee, textbook rental fees and an intercollegiate athletics fee.
