Michigan State University trustees consider tuition increase this morning
Michigan State University students should prepare to pay more tuition this fall.
The M-U Board of Trustees will vote on a tuition hike this morning.
The proposed tuition hike averages out to about 2.8%.
MSU president Lou Anna K. Simon defends the tuition increase.
“In terms of planning for families, we’ve tried to be as transparent as possible,” says Simon, “And we actually have a lower number than we planned.”
The tuition rate increase will not be uniform across the board.
Under the proposal, MSU freshmen and sophomores will see their in-state tuition rise 1.9%. Juniors and seniors will pay 3.6% more in in-state tuition. Tuition rates for other students will rise about 4%, if MSU’s trustees agree this morning.
