In an attempt to stay competitive with other Michigan universities, Western Michigan has voted to lower its' tuition cost for nonresident students. 

The current rate is 2.3 times the rate of residential students. After a vote from the Board of Trustees, nonresidential tuition will only be 1.25 times that of residential students.

The cap should go into effect for the first summer session beginning in May.

The new rate should cut first and second year tuition for students to less than $14,400.
