By  | 

The Michigan State University Board of Trustees is expected to hike student tuition by about seven percent next week now that lawmakers are close to finalizing a three percent boost in state aid to the school and the other 14 universities in the state.

A legislative conference committee finalized the increase on Wednesday. Steve Webster, lobbyist for MSU, tells News Ten in addition to increasing the tuition the board is also expected to increase financial aid to those students below the poverty level. The tuition cost per student will go up about $500 a year.
