Michigan State Announces Tuition Freeze for Undergraduate Students

-

Michigan State University has rolled out its plans to not increase tuition for the new undergraduate students starting next June.

University’s Board of Trustees announced on Friday its plan to freeze tuition amid rising costs of receiving the college education.

The trustees, while approving the university budget for the next academic year, also emphasized more state funding for higher education institutions that freeze tuition.

“Students and families today bear an increasingly heavy burden of the cost of public higher education, one shifted to them by the state at a time when post-high school training or education is more important than ever,” President John Engler said.

“Government investment in higher education provides greater economic returns than most other sectors of government spending, yet MSU’s per-student appropriations today only approximate 1992 levels.”

The trustees also gave their approval to convert MSU College of Law into a university.

“Since their original affiliation 23 years ago, the university and the law school have grown increasingly close. Full integration is the next logical step, and one that will benefit both institutions by creating new opportunities for interdisciplinary programs, initiatives and research,” said Lawrence Ponoroff, dean of the MSU College of Law.

Meanwhile, the board also sanctioned an amount of $2.5 million for installing lights at McLane Baseball Stadium and Secchia Softball Stadium.
