KALAMAZOO (WTVB) - It'll cost more to be a Bronco this fall. Western Michigan University's Board of Trustees has approved the recommendation from President John Dunn that they raise the tuition rate this fall. It will mean the typical full time freshman or sophomore will pay just shy of $10,000 a year for tuition. That’s an increase of $376, or 3.91%. It’s just below the four-percent cap put in place by the legislature. Dr. Dunn says WMU will rank 10th when it comes to cost, among the state’s 15 universities. The Board also approved the schools 358-million dollar budget for the coming year, which includes $4.2-million in cuts.
