Regents approve 6 percent tuition increase for summer term 2005

YPSILANTI - The Eastern Michigan University Board of Regent approved a tuition increase of 6 percent for summer term 2005 at its regular meeting today, June 21.

“Given the uncertainty (of the state appropriations picture), in lieu of recommending 2005-06 tuition and fee rates, we are recommending this increase as an offset to the known contractual  cost increases that EMU will incur in fiscal year 2006,” said Steve Holda, director of finance for EMU.

The 6 percent increase will mean that resident undergraduate students will pay $166.30 per credit hour, a $9.40 increase per credit hour. Resident graduate students will pay $301.25 per credit hour, a $17.05 increase per credit hour. Resident doctoral students will pay $347.15 per credit hour, an increase of $19.65 per credit hour.

Non-resident undergraduate students will pay $519.90 per credit hour, an increase of $29.45 per credit hour. Non-resident graduate students will pay $609.90 per credit hour, an increase of $34.55.  Non-resident doctoral students will pay $687.65 per credit hour, an increase of $38.95.

That means a resident undergraduate student who is a full-year equated student (30 credit hours per year) will pay $6,107.77, an increase of $345.72, including applicable fees.

The lone fee increase is a 75-cent increase to the student union fee, which will be $2.25 per credit hour for the 2005-06 summer term. There is no change for the general fee ($21 per credit hour), the technology fee ($10 per credit hour) and the registration fee ($40 per term).

Holda said that tuition and fees for fall, winter and spring will be recommended to the Board at a separate meeting as soon as more concrete information on the state appropriation is known.
