COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — In-state undergraduate students at Missouri universities will pay 1 percent more in tuition for the upcoming school year.
The University of Missouri Board of Curators on Monday approved a 2.1 percent increase, which reflects inflation rates and is the maximum allowed by state law.
In-state undergraduates will see a 1 percent increase, under a deal made with state lawmakers, who agreed not to reduce state funding for universities.
The legislature passed a bill last week that would keep funding for the universities at $395.8 million. The bill is awaiting Gov. Eric Gretiens’ signature.
