University of Illinois President Timothy Killeen says he will recommend that the school freeze its base tuition for incoming, in-state freshmen for a fourth consecutive year.
If the university’s board approves Killeen’s proposal, Illinois residents will pay $12,036 a year at Urbana-Champaign, $10,584 at Chicago and $9,405 in Springfield.
Those numbers do not include required fees or room and board.
University of Illinois’ board is scheduled to vote on Killeen’s proposal on Jan. 18.
Following a two-year budget impasse that starved Illinois’ public universities of aid, all but the Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Illinois at Chicago recorded enrollment drops in the fall.
