Tuition will climb 9 percent at Oakland University this fall, the highest percentage increase among Michigan's 15 public universities.
The rate increase approved by the university's governing board Wednesday would raise annual tuition for a state resident freshman to about $8,783 a year. That's up nearly $728 from last year but likely still leaves Oakland tuition below the statewide average.
The average tuition increase headed into next fall at Michigan's other public universities will be less than 6 percent.
Oakland officials have said they needed to raise tuition because of decreased state aid during a time of expansion at the university.
