U. of I. Considering Tuition Hike

The University of Illinois is increasing its cost of tuition, but by how much, officials haven't said.

Tuition costs, which are set annually by the University's Board of Trustees, will be determined next week at a meeting in Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Although specifics of the proposal haven't been announced, room-and-board charges are expected to increase while student fees will stay about the same, according to the Sun-Times.

Housing costs are projected to rise 2 percent at the school's Urbana-Champaign campus and 2.5 percent at its Chicago campus -- increasing the cost of a standard, double-room at Urbana-Champaign from $9,452 to $9,688 and at Chicago from $9,862 to $10,059.

Tuition at both campuses is partially based on what college students are admitted to and what program they're studying.
