According to the Lansing State Journal, Michigan State University trustees froze tuition rates for incoming freshman this fall and approved plans to institute a block tuition structure for the 2019-2020 school year.

Tuition for freshman will stay at the $482 per credit hour.  For most sophomores, juniors and seniors, rates will go up by $12 per credit hour, an increase of about 2.5% for sophomores and 2.2% for upperclassmen.

The rate of increase is the same for out-of-state freshmen, according to budget guidelines presented at Friday's Board of Trustees meeting.

Juniors and seniors enrolled in the College of Business or the College of Engineering will pay extra.  Interim President John Engler justified the rate increases.  Please click on the above link for more information.
