The University of Missouri System Board of Curators voted Monday to increase tuition and fees at the system’s four campuses in the fall.
The board approved a 2.1 percent increase in tuition, the maximum increase allowable by law, but tuition will go up only 1 percent for resident undergraduate students, as part of a UM System deal with state lawmakers, who agreed not to cut the system’s budget.
Non-resident and graduate students could larger tuition increases, though. Tuition hikes for professional programs range from 1.2 to 6 percent, depending on the program.
UM System President Mun Choi said that any additional revenue the UM System generates will fund improvements to overall operations and academics.
