STUDENTS PROTEST BUDGET CUTS
(2007-06-25)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A group of university student government
leaders from across Michigan today called on state lawmakers to
prevent budget cuts that have led to higher tuition rates.
Students said the higher tuition rates have made college less
affordable, forced them to work more hours to pay their bills and
increased loan debt for graduates.
Michigan's 15 public universities have been hampered by budget
cuts over the past few years.
Universities may not get all the money they were supposed to
this fiscal year.
The result likely will be higher tuition at Michigan
universities.
Michigan Tech already has approved a tuition increase of more
than 9 percent for next year.
Several schools are expected to follow suit in the coming weeks.
