ST. LOUIS, MO.  (AP) – We may know by the end of the day if tuition at the University of Missouri’s four campuses will be going up.

University curators will meet by video teleconference along with new university president Tim Wolfe to consider proposed increases that range from 3 percent at the Kansas City campus to 9 percent at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla and a 7.5 percent increase at Columbia.

The possible tuition increases come despite Gov. Nixon agreeing to use $40 million from a nationwide settlement with mortgage lenders to offset cuts to higher education.  The boost would reduce the proposed cut in higher education funding from 12.5 percent to slightly less than 8 percent.
