Rising costs f college education
The University's tuition increase sits on the high end of
rises in the cost of an in-state education in the Big Ten or in
peer institutions.

The University of Michigan was
edged out by Michigan State Univer-
sity in rising tuition rates for Big Ten
schools. Most University students will
pay an additional 9.5 percent in tuition
for the 1993-94 school year, 1.8 per-
cent behind Michigan State.
Tuition and fees will climb over
$500 for in-state undergraduate stu-
a rise twice that amount.
The numbers were announced at
* the meeting of the University Board of
Regents last week. University Provost
-and Vice President Gilbert Whitaker
presented a $671 million general fund
budget that offered merit salary in-
creases to faculty members who saw
no rise in their paychecks last year.
The tuition and fee increase will
with state appropriations, payments
from the federal government associ-
ated with research and other revenue,
will pay for anincreasein financial aid,
merit salary increases, fixed cost in-
creases and new programs.
The in-state undergraduate tuition
(excluding business administration,
dentistry,engineering andkinesiology)
is going up 9.5 percent. First- and
second-year students will be paying
$2,175 per semester, up $207 fromlast
year. Upper-division students will be
paying $2,394, up $228 fromlast year.

Non-resident undergraduate stu-
dents willpay anadditional6.9 percent
(excluding business administration,
dentistry,engineering andkinesiology).
First- and second-year students will
pay $7,027 per semester,up $488 from
last year. Upper-division students will
pay $7,529, up $522 from last year.
In-state Law students will face the
largest tuition increase at 17.3 percent.
The$911 raisebringstuitionto$5,269.
Non-resident law students have the
lowest increase at 5.1 percent. The
$474increase brings the totalto$9256.
Although the state appropriations
were frozen again this year, the Uni-
versityreceivedadditionalmonies from
research and indirect cost recovery
which offset the possibility of greater
tuition increases.
"It certainly could have been
worse," said Whitaker. "And we
haven't taken the cuts that other agen-
cies have."
Publicinstitutionsarebringing their
out-of-state tuition rates up to the lev-
els of private schools, said University
President James Duderstadt.
Whitaker said, "The 6.9 percent as

trying to remain market competitive

Rock will1
stay on
The Rock has been given a stay of
execution - temporarily.
Yesterday, the Ann Arbor Parks
Advisory Commission (PAC) unani-
mously approved a resolution that al-
lows the Rock to stay at its present
location, while the Parks and Recre-
ation Department completes its inves-
tigation into the matter.
According to the resolution:
the site willbe cleaned up within
the next four weeks;
a trash container will be pro-
vided, signs will be posted clarifying
what can and cannot be painted and
instructing Rock painters to clean up
after themselves;
an investigation will be made to
see if the Rock must be moved to
facilitate a complete environmental
clean up;
. the PAC will continue to accept
public input on the matter,
M a patrol system around the Rock
will be developed; and,
a final recommendation on the
Rock's future will be made to City
Council by Dec. 1, 1993.

Students may be holding on to their
wallets while faculty members may let
out a sigh of relief as they peruse the
1993-94 University budget.
The tuition and fee increase will
with state appropriations, payments
from the federal govemment associ-
ated with research and other revenue,
fund the $671 million budget. The
budget will fund an increase in finan-
cial aid, salaries, fixed costs and the

creation of new programs.
Students looking for financial aid
may have to wait to find out about
funding. The federal govemment has
notyetdetermined the funding amounts
for the Pell Grant program.
"We wanted to increase the propor-
tion of gift aid," said University Vice
