Tuition Up 3.45 Percent At Universities In Michigan

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A new report says the average tuition increase among public universities in Michigan this year was 3.45 percent, slightly higher than the increase nationwide.

The Detroit Free Press reports the update Wednesday comes from the nonprofit College Board. Nationwide, for in-state students at a four-year public college or university, published tuition and fees increased this year on average 2.9 percent.

Michigan lawmakers set a cap of 3.75 percent for universities to qualify for a portion of $21.9 million in performance funding. Wayne State University, with an 8.9 percent increase, was the only university in the state to exceed the cap and sacrifice the state dollars.
