Trustees on Friday will consider raising tuition by 3.6 percent for juniors and seniors, but only 1.9 percent for freshmen and sophomores. Dave Byelich, an assistant vice president, said the goal is to get new students to campus and make college as affordable as possible.

Freshmen and sophomores would pay about $12,900 for 30 credits, while juniors and seniors would pay nearly $14,300. Byelich said the cost of teaching more experienced students typically is higher because classes are smaller.

Thanks Matt, how much does UofM AA charge?

Well they're going to have to start charging a lot more because in the next few years parents and students won't be able to afford any 4 year state schools. 1st year room/board and tuition, it doesn't matter where you go, they all seem to be $20K. It's just getting ridiculous.....
