President Peter McPherson said the school hopes to only increase tuition by no more than 2.4-percent.
As part of his State of the University address, McPherson said he might toy with the ideas of brining in revenue for the university through weekend masters programs, classes for high school students and credit through exams.
Also a concern to MSU’s president is the amount of time students spend while at the university.
On average an MSU student spends 4.5 years studying for their degree.
The hope is by perhaps eliminating some prerequisite classes or increasing tuition for fifth year students – this could save money in tuition and overall school expenses for students.
