The action, which is in compliance with the state’s tuition cap, keeps Grand Valley’s tuition in the lower half of all Michigan universities.

Trustees voted to increase tuition by $188 per semester. This is one of the smallest tuition increases in the last 20 years and brings annual tuition to $10,454 for a full-time undergraduate Michigan resident. The action follows the release earlier this week of a U.S. Department of Education study showing that the net cost of attendance at Grand Valley has actually dropped by 3 percent.

The budget adopted by the board includes $35 million for student financial aid, an increase of $1.4 million, and a modest 2 percent wage increase for faculty and staff members.
