EAST LANSING, Mich. Michigan State University is proposing to charge juniors and seniors more than other undergraduate students.

Trustees on Friday will consider raising tuition by 3.6 percent for juniors and seniors but only 1.9 percent for freshmen and sophomores. Dave Byelich, an assistant vice president, says the goal is to get new students to campus and make college as affordable as possible.

Freshmen and sophomores would pay about $12,900 for 30 credits while juniors and seniors would pay nearly $14,300. Byelich says the cost of teaching more experienced students typically is higher because classes are smaller.
