Purdue University and other public colleges in Indiana are waiting until lawmakers approve a new state budget before they set next year's tuition rates.
The wait can be frustrating for families trying to determine what college is best for them.
Purdue plans to announce its 2009-2010 tuition in May -- weeks after the deadline for students to accept admission offers.
Some schools in Indiana are delaying tuition decisions until the General Assembly approves a new state budget. The legislative session is scheduled to end April 29.
On May 8, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education is expected to give the state budget committee nonbinding recommendations for tuition rates at each state university.
