LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder proposes a three-percent funding increase for community colleges and universities based on new distribution formulas.

For community colleges funding will be distributed based upon their share of the total number of certificate and associate degree completions.  For universities funding will be distributed based upon the growth in the number of undergraduate degree completions.

The funding proposal also involves the number of undergraduate completions in critical skills areas, the number of undergraduate Pell Grant recipients, and compliance with tuition restraint.
