If you area student or a parent of a student at SIUE, get ready to open your checkbooks. The Board of Trustees has approved a tuition increase for the 2018-19 Academic Year. The annual tuition rate will now be $9,123 for new, full-time undergraduate students (15 hours per semester) entering fall 2018. Undergraduate students currently in a guaranteed tuition plan will see no increase in their annual tuition rate. University spokesman Doug McIlhagga (MAC-ill-HAY-guh) says fee hikes have become more of a regular occurrence in recent years.
In fall 2017, in-state tuition became available to all new and continuing domestic undergraduate students. Offering in-state tuition to out-of-state students helps the University attract students from across the country, according to McIlhagga.
