MSU students can breathe a little easier tonight after hearing what MSU President Dr. Jesse Rogers is recommending about tuition.
Dr. Rogers is suggesting that there be no tuition increase.
The price of a higher education has been on an upward climb over the past few years, making it difficult for many students who are struggling financially.
So, Dr. Rogers suggested the board hold off raising the rates.
"We do not know a lot of factors that relate to our budget. We've been able to add to the budget. We're gonna propose to the board $1.1 million for staff and faculty raises. We can balance our budget without an increase and I think at this time we do all we can to help our students," Dr. Rogers says.
The board of regents is expected to officially vote tomorrow on not raising tuition for the 2013--2014 school year.
