INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Tuition at one central Indiana university will not be increasing, at least for one year.

Butler University announced Thursday that tuition rates will remain the same for the 2021-2022 school year.

“Many of our current and incoming students and their families have been impacted financially by the pandemic, and it is my hope that, by freezing tuition, we can help ease their burden,” James Danko, Butler University president said. “I am pleased that we can provide some stability to our students and their families during this very uncertain period.”

“The tuition freeze is so important as students and their families continue to face unimaginable hardships,” Maya Patel, a junior majoring in Strategic Communication, said. “We can take solace in the much needed economic stability for the next academic year, allowing us to focus on our academics and finding our new normal.”

The move from the private university, approved by the school’s board of trustees, means that tuition will stay at 2020-2021 levels.
