EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State University Board of Trustees has approved a 3.4 percent tuition increase for in-state undergraduate students.
The East Lansing school said that with the increase approved Friday a student taking a full load of classes, defined as 15 credit hours, will pay about $6,311 per semester.
That's $210 per semester more, or $14 per credit hour more than currently paid.
The increase takes effect for fall 2012.
School President Lou Anna Simon says the budget represents a continued commitment to world-class programs, financial aid and fiscal prudence.
The school expects a $44.00 per credit hour tuition increase for nonresident undergraduate students.
For graduate students, Michigan residents will see an increase of $28.25 per credit hour.
Nonresidents will see an increase of $55.75 per credit hour.
