KOKOMO, Ind. – Beginning next summer, undergraduate students at Indiana University Kokomo will receive a 25 percent discount in tuition for classes taken during the two summer sessions.
The IU Trustees today (October 28) approved the plan unveiled earlier this week by IU President Michael McRobbie. The vote occurred during a special board meeting at the IU Bloomington campus.
For those students who take a full academic course load in the summer, the tuition reductions will result in a savings of about $600.
“I am thrilled the trustees have approved this plan that will provide a significant savings to our students,” said Chancellor Michael Harris. “This will offer financial relief to many students and encourage them to continue their education year-round. Not only will this have a positive impact on keeping our students here, it will also help them earn their degrees in a more timely manner.”
President McRobbie, who announced the plan on Oct. 24, told trustees that the new initiative will make an IU education more affordable, reduce the length of time it takes many students to earn a degree and allow for greater use of the university’s facilities across the state.
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
