LANSING, Mich. (AP) – The state has ruled Michigan State University and Wayne State University are in compliance with a policy aimed at keeping tuition increases for the 2011-12 academic year below 7.1 percent.

State budget director John Nixon issued the ruling Thursday in letters to the universities. Nixon said he found that the universities were in “technical compliance” with tuition restraint provisions approved by the state Legislature and Gov. Rick Snyder. That means Michigan State University will receive about $18 million and Wayne State University will get about $13 million in state aid they otherwise would have lost.

Both universities have said they’re in compliance with the law.

The nonpartisan House Fiscal Agency had calculated their tuition increases at above 7.1 percent compared to 2010 data.
