(A) The Fall 2008 per credit hour rate incorporates a phased restructuring of existing tuition and fees over three years (Fall 2008, Fall 2009, Fall 2010). Energy and matriculation fees, which students had previously paid each semester, are being incorporated into the per credit hour cost.

(1) Restored to Fall 2009 rates. See Spring 2010 comment.

(2) The Spring 2010 tuition and fee rates were offset by $5 on a one-time basis for all resident undergraduate students, funded with federal stimulus funds provided to MSU.

(3) The Spring 2009 tuition and fee rates have generally been increased by 1.2%. However, a one time offset was provided, effectively deferring the impact of the increase until summer semester 2009.

(4) The tuition amount for undergraduate students beginning enrollment during the 2005/2006 academic year, is net of a $9.75 per credit hour rebate for the 2005/06 academic year.

(5) Effective Fall semester 1992, MSU switched from 4 terms per year to 3 semesters per year, which explains the large increase in tuition.
