Michigan State University hikes tuition 3.5%
It’s going to cost the average Michigan State University student $210 more to attend the fall semester.
The MSU Trustees today approved a 3.5 percent tuition increase for next year.
The increase will be slightly higher for out-of-state students.
Lou Anna Simon is president of MSU. She says no one wants to raise college tuition.
“There are stories about students who are definitely in debt at a higher level than they should be,” Simon told the MSU Board of Trustees before the vote.
Other Michigan public colleges and universities also approved tuition hikes this week, including the University of Michigan and Michigan Tech.
