NEW Reduced Out‐of‐State Advantage Rate begins Fall 2018
The plan, called R.O.A.R.: Reduced Out‐of‐State Advantage Rate, is a new tuition plan with lower rates for future out‐of‐state students.
In October 2017, the Purdue Board of Trustees approved PNW to introduce lower tuition rates for future out-of-state students effective fall 2018. The new tuition rate is 1.5 times the in-state rate and will be offered to non-resident domestic students who are first-time freshmen, new-to-campus transfer students, or new graduate students. Non-resident domestic students are those who live outside of Indiana but within the United States.
This new tuition and fee structure helps to make a PNW degree more affordable to students from outside of Indiana.
“Student-athletes and top students from all over the country are recognizing the Purdue Northwest name and are interested in attending PNW,” said Chancellor Thomas L. Keon. “PNW offers a quality degree distinguished by opportunities for real-world experience, at an excellent value.”
“The Hammond campus is located only 3 miles from the Illinois state line, and the Westville campus less than 40 miles from Illinois and just 22 miles from Michigan, so Purdue Northwest already attracts a significant number of students from surrounding states,” Keon said.
