Michigan State University students should prepare to pay more tuition this fall.

The M-U Board of Trustees will vote on a tuition hike this morning. 

The proposed tuition hike averages out to about 2.8%.

MSU president Lou Anna K. Simon defends the tuition increase.

“In terms of planning for families, we’ve tried to be as transparent as possible,” says Simon, “And we actually have a lower number than we planned.”

The tuition rate increase will not be uniform across the board.

Under the proposal, MSU freshmen and sophomores will see their in-state tuition rise 1.9%.  Juniors and seniors will pay 3.6% more in in-state tuition. Tuition rates for other students will rise about 4%, if MSU’s trustees agree this morning.
