UNIVERSITIES CHARGING MORE FEES
(2007-02-28)
(wgvu) - A new audit from the state shows that
tuition and fees collected at Michigan's 15 public universities
rose an average of 37 percent over a four-year period ending with
the 2005-06 fiscal year.
The higher prices at Michigan universities at least in part are
because of declining state taxpayer aid.
State government appropriations going to universities declined
by about 12 percent in the same time period. Universities made up
the difference with higher prices charged to students.
Some of the increased costs of attending a university came in
new fees, which aren't as immediately apparent to students applying
to attend a particular school.
Fees are charged for a variety of items such as technology,
class registration and student activity centers.
