MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Central Michigan University's Board of Trustees has voted to raise 2013-14 tuition by 2.47 percent, or $9 per credit hour for in-state students.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/ZKi6cL ) undergraduate, in-state students will pay $374 per credit hour, up from $365 last year at the Mount Pleasant school. For a full-time student, the increase amounts to $270 in added tuition expenses for a year.

Under Gov. Rick Snyder's proposed budget, universities would be required to to hold tuition and fee increases to less than 4 percent or lose part of their state aid. The Senate's budget has the same requirement. The House would limit the hikes to 3 percent.

Other Michigan schools are expected to set tuition rates later.
