Last fall, full time undergraduate students paying in-state rates were charged $2,698 each semester.

Some students at the University of MI could qualify for free tuition starting next January.

University of Michigan's president Dr. Mark Schlissel announced that the university plans to offer free tuition for MI students for up to four years with family income of less than $65,0000 per year.

"If you're talented and willing to work hard", says UM President Mark Schlissel, "regardless of what your family's income is - we will find a way to help you afford a spectacular college education".

That will cost $79.80 more for in-state, full-time undergraduate students and $86.16 for in-state, full-time graduate students.

The increase to student fees at Pittsburg State will average 2.75 percent.

The rates for the next school year approved Thursday for resident and non-resident tuition include 2.5% increases at the University of Kansas; 2.9% at Kansas State University; 2.5 percent at Wichita State; 2.7% at Emporia State; 2.8% at Pittsburg State and 2.9% at Fort Hays State.

The Regents said, with the hikes, they expect to raise approximately $736 million in tuition in the upcoming year.

Several universities have already set tuition, including Oakland University which increased its average rate 3.74 percent for 2017-18, kicking off the season.
