Eastern Michigan University Tuition Increasing 3.2 Percent, Budget Approved
Eastern Michigan University is increasing funding for public safety and financial aid next school year. The board of regents today approved a $301.9 million general fund budget.
President Susan Martin says the additional $4.6 million in aid means more outstanding students will receive Emerald Scholarships covering close to half of their tuition. She says these students are a good investment because they are taking more classes, staying on campus, and graduating.
Students will pay an extra $10 per credit hour as tuition increases by 3.2 percent. This matches the cap to be eligible for state performance funding.
