Michigan academics: What goes into your tuition?

Have you ever wondered what exactly goes into that tuition that makes you want to pull your hair out and scream? According to a study by the Michigan government, we can actually see why students in Michigan pay the prices that they pay.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn has the lowest overall cost of all four year-public schools in Michigan. The total cost is $15,419.36 for a student taking 13 credit hours per semester.

Kendal College of Ferris State ranks the highest at $26,585 in the overall price. On the other side of the spectrum, they average the most affordable in books.

Our little brother, Michigan State, averages the lowest in transportation. The University of Michigan-Flint averages to be the highest.

The main campus of U-of-M has the highest room and board fees at almost $9.5 thousand. For students looking for the most cost efficient room and board fees, you’ll want to check out U-of-M Dearborn for that route.

So while tuition does continue to rise, these are the factors that each university must look into so their campuses can stay in good standings.
