U. of I. tuition may be frozen for in-state students - Jodi S. Cohen, Chicago Tribune

The University of Illinois has proposed a tuition freeze for in-state undergraduates next fall, part of an effort to woo high-achieving Illinois students who are increasingly leaving the state for less expensive options. The freeze, if approved by trustees next week, would mark the first time in more than two decades that tuition would not increase at the state's flagship public school. The rate would remain unchanged for that class of students for four years under the state's guaranteed tuition law. New students would pay the same tuition as this year's freshmen: $12,036 at the Urbana-Champaign campus, $10,584 at the Chicago campus and $9,405 in Springfield. The total cost is more than double that, however, including mandatory student fees and housing.
