EMU Delays Fall Tuition Increase

Ypsilanti, MI – Eastern Michigan University students will have to wait a while longer to find out how much their tution rates will increase for the fall and winter semesters.
EMU's Board of Regents yesterday increased tuition six percent for summer semester classes, but put off setting rates for the new school year, hoping to get a better idea of what EMU's state funding will be.
Governor Granholm, the state senate, and the state house all have separate proposals for university funding for the coming fiscal year with no resolution in sight.
The state's new fiscal year begins October first. EMU's fiscal year begins July first.
