ALLENDALE (WHTC) - If you have a student at Grand Valley State University, you’ll have to dig deeper to pay for tuition in the fall. The University’s board of trustees Friday approved a 3.7 percent increase in tuition, or about $181 more per semester for a typical full-time student. That boosts the annual cost for attending classes at G-V-S-U to more than $10,000. University officials say even with the increase, tuition costs are still below the statewide average, and Grand Valley plans to step up its financial aid to students to more than make up for that hike. Tuition at Grand Valley has doubled in the last 10 years.
