Michigan Tech is getting a boost in their appropriations from the state.
Last week, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed the state’s 2017-18 budget.
Included is a 2 percent increase for higher education, which provides an additional $960,700 for Michigan Tech.
The University’s state appropriation totals $49,052,200, which is 20 percent of its $205,382,566 operating budget.
The state budget set a tuition increase cap of 3.8 percent.
Michigan Tech’s tuition for the 2017-18 academic year averages $14,774 for Michigan residents, keeping the University under the tuition cap.
Tech has never exceeded the state-set tuition cap since it was first established in 2011-12.
