SIU's Board of Trustees has approved a three percent increase in tuition for SIU-C beginning fall 2013.
Trustees are meeting Thursday on the SIU Carbondale campus. Administrators had proposed a 5% increase for SIUC. Earlier this spring, Chancellor Rita Cheng said even at five percent the increase likely would not off-set a lower appropriation from the state in FY 2014. At the time, Cheng said further reorganization of the Carbondale campus might be needed to make up the gap.
