A few of Michigan's public universities are rolling back their tuition increases for the upcoming semester.

That gives some students a slight break after relatively high tuition markups earlier this academic year.

Michigan State University, Ferris State University and Wayne State University are among those announcing plans to cut tuition rates or eliminate fees for early 2008.

The average tuition bill rose more than 10 percent this academic year at Michigan's 15 public universities.

Schools were forced to raise tuition more than the national average because of the state's budget crisis, which made funding uncertain for several months.
