It's going to cost more to go to Western Michigan University this coming school year.

Western Michigan University trustees voted Wednesday to raise tuition and fees 4.19%.
That figure is just under the state's tuition restraint request. What this means is, effective with the start of the fall 2016 semester, annual costs for a full-time Michigan freshman or sophomore to attend WMU will be $11,493—$464 more than the last year's cost. The new tuition rates for a full-time, out-of-state freshman or sophomore will be $26,851 for the full academic year. Resident and nonresident graduate students will pay $554.65 and $1,174.80 per credit hour, respectively.

WMU trustees also approved an increase in tuition and required fees for students enrolled in WMU's Extended University Programs. That increase applies to students taking courses online or at WMU regional locations. For undergraduate online courses, the per-credit-hour rate will be $365.51 plus a $60 per-credit-hour fee for 100 percent online courses.

For courses at EUP regional locations, the cost will be $436.77 per credit hour for undergraduate courses. The cost will be $617.43 per credit hour for graduate courses taught either in person at regional locations or online. A $20 per class technology fee will continue for these face-to-face and graduate online classes.
