Wayne State plans 2015 spring-summer tuition break

Detroit — Wayne State University plans to offer a 30 percent tuition break for classes during the 2015 spring and summer semesters.

Robert Kohrman, the Detroit school’s associate vice president for budget, planning and analysis, tells the Detroit Free Press for a Thursday story an aim is to help students graduate faster. The discount saves students about $100 per credit hour, or $300 to $400 per class.

Kohrman says between 10 percent and 15 percent of students took spring and summer classes last year.

To get the discount, students must complete at least 24 credits total during fall 2014 and winter 2015 semesters and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Tuition rates for spring and summer classes are the same as for fall and winter classes.
