Fewer in-state students attending Purdue U. after tuition freezes

Now in a fourth year of tuition freezes, Purdue University in Indiana has become majority out-of-state and international students.

According to the Indianapolis Star, there are 1,228 fewer undergraduates from the Hoosier State and 336 more nonresidents—who pay almost three times the tuition rate as Indiana residents—since tuition rates were frozen in 2012. Critics say in-state students are being squeezed out for more profitable out-of-state students.
