EAST LANSING (WWJ) – Students at Michigan State University will pay more for tuition next fall. But the increase is smaller than in previous years.

MSU President Lou Anna Simon says the school was able to hold the line on tuition thanks to an increase in state funding.

“And if we were having this conversation a year ago, we predicted a zero appropriation and a 4 percent tuition (increase) now we have a 2 percent appropriation and we essentially gave the full benefit of that to the students by having an average tuition increase for undergraduates of 2.8 percent,” said Simon.

Freshmen and sophomores will see a 1.9 percent increase, while juniors and seniors would pay 3.6 percent more.

The University of Michigan is raising tuition 1.1 percent for state residents, the smallest increase since 1985.
