Regents to vote on tuition hike
BY RYAN TUTAK
Tuition will skyrocket 12 percent next year
if the University's Board of Regents approve
Provost James Duderstadt's proposed 1988-89
fiscal year budget this morning. But the pro-
posal alarmed some regents.
"A 21 percent increase will not sit well
with the public," said Regent Deane Baker
Regent Neal Nielsen (R-Brighton) said
out-of-state tuition should be increased more
than in-state fees. Even with the larger hike,
the University would remain underpriced for
out-of-staters compared to private universi-

recession - would cost in-state undergradu-

out-of-staters could pay up to $1,200 more.

students could face an added 15.2 percent.
Duderstadt said tuition must be boosted to
offset the minimal state funding that's been
projected. The University requested a 21 per-
cent increase from the previous year. But
Governor James Blanchard proposed to up
state allocations here by only 0.8 percent,
slightly lower than the State House's recom-
"It really reflects a very weak budget year
in the state of Michigan," he said, adding that
the state will decide upon appropriations for
the University next week.
