ANN ARBOR (AP) – Tuition for in-state, undergraduate students at the University of Michigan will go up by 3.9 percent in the fall.

Regents approved the hike Thursday in Ann Arbor by a 5-3 vote as part of the school’s budget. The school says the increase is below the state’s 4.2 percent cap.

Tuition and fees for first-year, in-state undergraduates in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts will be $14,402, an increase of $546.

Tuition will go up 4.4 percent for out-of-state students, while students in most graduate and professional programs will pay 3.9 percent more.

Regents also voted to increase undergraduate financial aid by 10.8 percent.

Michigan State University approved increases Wednesday of 3.7 percent for freshmen and sophomores, 3.9 percent for juniors and seniors and 4.2 percent for out-of-state undergrads.
