Community College Costs Soar in Michigan. Blame Sinking State Aid.December 8, 2019 |

In a state that has struggled to increase the number of people with college degrees, the gap between tuition costs at Michigan’s 28 community colleges is widening.
At just over $3,000 for a year of classes, Oakland Community College is the least expensive in the state, and it sits in one of the wealthiest counties in the country. Nearly one of every two adults in Oakland County has a college degree, far higher than the national average of about 31 percent.
