89.1 WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports on the EMU Board of Regents setting tuition rates and the general fund budget for the 2014-15 school year.

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.
