If you area student or a parent of a student at SIUE, you will be dealing with a tuition and fee increase for the 2016-2017 school year.  The increase amounts to a $690 increase over last year for newly entering, in-state undergraduates on the Edwardsville campus.

That comes out to a total of $8,352.  SIUE spokesman Doug McIlhagga tells The Big Z undergraduate students currently in a guaranteed tuition plan will see no increase in their annual tuition rate.

Tuition will remain the same for students enrolled in both the School of Dental Medicine (SDM) and in the School of Pharmacy (SOP). In-state SDM students will pay an annual tuition of $29,124, while in-state SOP students will pay an annual tuition of $23,448.
