It’ll be a little more expensive to attend Northern Michigan University this fall. At a special meeting on Friday, the NMU Board of Trustees voted to raise tuition by 3.2%. Full-time undergrads from within Michigan had to pay just under $9,100 in tuition and fees this year. They’ll have to pay $9,385 next year. An expected 3% decline in enrollment for this fall means that budget cuts are also expected, even with the tuition increase. NMU officials also considered tuition hikes of 0%, 1%, 2% and 3%, but the expected budget cuts would have been even more steep under any of those options. Even with tuition going up, NMU will maintain its position as the second most affordable university in Michigan’s Public 15.
