MACOMB, Ill. (AP) - The Western Illinois University board of trustees plans to consider a 4.5 percent increase on all student costs.
Trustees will take on the issue Friday. The increase would
affect tuition, fees and room and board. The rate would be
guaranteed for four years to students entering WIU this fall. Last year the increase was 4.6 percent.
WGEM in Quincy reports undergraduate students entering the Macomb campus this fall will be charged about $8,000 in tuition, up about $350 dollars from last year. Annual room and board will go up about $400 for the average student.
