KALAMAZOO--Acting at its Feb. 29 meeting, the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees gave its seal of approval to a resolution that authorizes the administration to negotiate favorable nonresident tuition rates for international partners that guarantee the enrollment of multiple groups of graduate or undergraduate students over a period of time.

The resolution passed by the board set the minimum tuition figure that could be offered at 125 percent of the University's resident tuition rate. The policy applies to all new agreements as well as the renegotiation of current agreements.
