It will cost more to attend Michigan Tech University in Houghton this fall.
The MTU Board of Trustees has announced tuition increases that should bring in more than five million extra dollars to the university. Most students will see an increase of between two and three percent.
First and second year students will pay just over seven thousand dollars per semester, while third and fourth year students also have several fees tacked on, depending on their major.
Tech officials say that some courses cost more to deliver than others, thus the different tuition rates. At the same time, the university is making more scholarships available, an increase of nine percent in financial aid.
Michigan Tech's overall budget increased by 5 percent, to $168.2 million, with state appropriations expected to increase $2.5 million.
