A 50 percent tuition discount for active military students.
Continuation of student semester parking pass discounts.
Board of Governors Chair Sandy Hughes O'Brien offered comment on the increase:
"Although it never feels good to raise tuition, I’m pleased we were able to limit the increase because our students feel the effects of any increase, big or small. It’s our job as a Board to help make the cost of attendance as affordable and accessible as possible for all students. That’s why we’re excited about our new financial aid programs. This budget will allow us to sustain the excellence of Wayne State and continue to increase the value of a Wayne State degree.”
