WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- A tuition freeze implemented by Purdue University is putting public pressure on other public universities to do the same.

President Mitch Daniels announced the two-year freeze on Purdue's West Lafayette campus March 1. It's the first time in 36 years that Purdue students haven't seen an increase.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/11ozmzV ) other schools say they won't necessarily follow suit.

Indiana University spokesman Mark Land says IU won't be pressured by Purdue's actions.

IU and Ball State University have discounted tuition to help boost college completion rates. Students who are on track to graduate in four years can receive scholarships or have tuition frozen at the schools.

Both schools also reduce tuition for summer terms.

Tuition increases across the country have exceeded the rate of inflation.
