Wayne State to offer 30 percent discount on summer classes for some students

Wayne State University students looking to squeeze an extra class or two into their summer schedule next year can get a nice price break, the university will announce today. The tuition break — 30 percent off — will be for classes during the 2015 spring and summer semesters. To get the price break, students have to complete at least 24 credits total during fall 2014 and winter 2015 semesters and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students need 120 credits to graduate. “The spring/summer tuition break is intended to serve as motivation for the student out there who might be deciding between nine or 12 credits this fall,” said Margaret E. Winters, Wayne State’s provost. “Hopefully this will create some urgency for them to add that extra class now and progress toward their degree in the most cost-effective way possible.”
