Tuition Going Up At Michigan State University

EAST LANSING (AP) – Juniors and seniors at Michigan State University will have fewer dollars for beer and pizza.

Trustees approved a tuition plan Friday that charges them more than other in-state undergraduates.

Freshmen and sophomores would pay about $12,900 for 30 credits, a 1.9 percent increase, while juniors and seniors would pay nearly $14,300, a 3.6 percent increase. Officials say the goal is to get new students to campus and make college as affordable as possible.

They’re also justifying the higher rates for juniors and seniors by saying those students typically take smaller classes.

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