Tuition set for coming NMU academic year

MARQUETTE, MI— The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees has set new tuition and fee rates for the coming academic year.

The combined cost for full-time resident undergraduates will be $6,324 per semester, an increase of $238 per semester, or 3.9 percent. Nonresident undergraduates will pay an additional $238 as well, while graduate tuition will go up by $24 per credit.

The university says it will invest another $900,000 in student financial aid.

NMU Vice President for Finance and Administration Gavin Leach said the proposal was developed around a projected state appropriation (as the legislative budget process had not yet concluded), an estimated enrollment outlook for fall, and escalating inflationary cost pressures for supplies and utilities.
