Oakland University Approves Tuition Hike
Oakland University says its 2010-11 tuition will increase 5.76 percent for undergraduate students, and slightly more for graduate students.
Officials at the university approved the increases Tuesday. For full-time undergraduates, tuition will go up by $18 per credit hour to $9,716.
The 5.77 percent hike approved for graduate students will increase tuition by $30 a credit hour to $12,972. The school says it’s boosting financial aid by $4.8 million, or 24.8 percent. The increase provides a 53 percent discount to more than half of Oakland’s undergraduate students.
The Rochester-based public university has about 19,000 students.
