Mott Community College students will pay more in tuition beginning next winter.
MCC spokesperson Michael Kelly told NBC25 the Board of Trustees unanimously approved a 4.5 percent tuition hike Monday night.
In-district students will pay just over $5 more per contact hour.
The yearly cost for the average student will go up to $2,729.36 starting January 2014, from the current average of $2,465.56.
Board members attribute the tuition hike to a decline in property taxes as well as cuts in state aid.
