Michigan college tuition rates increase at lowest rate in decade

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new report finds that tuition increases at four-year public universities nationwide increased at their smallest rate in more than 30 years.

The non-profit College Board released their "Trends in Higher Education" report this week and showed the cost for students to attend college went up by 2.9-percent.  In Michigan, the average increase for public universities was just under 3.45-percent.

State lawmakers in Michigan have placed caps on tuition increases at 3.75-percent in order for them to receive a portion on nearly 22-million dollars in state aid.
