Tuition Going Up At Missouri State

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Students at Missouri State University will be paying a little bit more in the upcoming academic year.

Missouri State’s board of governors voted Friday to raise tuition about 3 percent, or about $6.48 per credit hour, for in-state undergraduate students.

Out-of-state undergrads will see their tuition go up by about $24 per credit hour. Graduate students will also see even bigger increases in their tuition bills.

The university’s business school will also implement a $25-per-credit-hour fee for upper-level courses.

Interim university president Clifton Smart III says the tuition hikes are needed to help the school provide a quality education.

Missouri lawmakers are still working on the state’s higher education budget for next year, but funding cuts are possible.
