SVSU Least Expensive Michigan University

Saginaw Valley State University remains the least expensive of Michigan’s 15 public universities.

Saginaw Valley State raised tuition by nearly 6 percent this year – one of the largest increases of any Michigan university – but The Saginaw News reports its overall tuition rate of $7,300 is nearly $800 a year less than the state’s second least expensive, Northern Michigan University.

The report Saturday said Michigan Technical University overtook the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor as the state’s most expensive university. Michigan-Ann Arbor had a modest tuition increase of 1.5 percent.

Western Michigan University had the highest increase at nearly 7 percent.

Many universities expect state aid to fall this year. The Michigan Senate Appropriations Committee is considering a plan to reduce higher education funding by 3 percent.
