University officials say budget shortfalls 'should not' affect pending tuition increase - Ben Solis, Central Michigan Life

Students can expect a "modest" tuition increase for the 2017-18 academic year, according to Central Michigan University officials. While the university manages a $10.6 million budget deficit — which grew from $9 million earlier this year — officials have no immediate plans to use tuition to make up their losses. "I have not had any conversation with the president where we talked about attempting to balance the budget with a tuition increase," said Barrie Wilkes, vice president of Finance and Administrative Services. "That's not the plan. We will balance the budget the way we traditionally do, and that's by making reductions and being more efficient than we can be."
