MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees approved an increase in tuition rates for the coming fall semester. The board approved a 3.9 percent increase after a recommendation from the finance committee.

For lower-level classes that means $238 more per semester and $250 for upper-level courses. NMU Administration says it will still have affordable tuition even with the increase.

“With the recommendations being made we’ll achieve the goal of maintaining affordable tuition, we’ll remain second lowest in tuition, actually falling further behind the other schools in front of us as well as addressing the inflation costs increase that we are incurring now,” said Gavin Leach, NMU vice president for finance.

Additionally, the graduate tuition will go up by $24 per credit. NMU is also investing an additional $900,000 in financial aid for students.
