Michigan Tech’s Board of Control is raising tuition by nearly 7%.
The board voted today to increase tuition and mandatory fees from just above $13,000 for this past school year to just under $14,000 for next year.
Governor Rick Snyder has said he wants to cut state spending on the Public 15 universities by 22%.
But he says he’ll change that to 15% for each school that limits tuition hikes to 7% or less.
Michigan tech’s new budget is based on that expected 15% decline in state appropriations.
