Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees has voted to raise tuition for next year at the Marquette school.

The board unanimously passed a 4.2% increase in tuition fees at their regular meeting this morning on campus.

Students with 56 credits or more will pay another $322.00 per credit hour, while those with less than 56 credits will see an increase of $74.00 per credit hour.

The board says the increase was necessary to cover for continuing declines in the amount of funding the school receives each year from the State of Michigan.

The increase is part of an overall plan to address a current a $2.3 million budget shortfall.
