UM System curators vote to increase tuition at state universities

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.

UM System President Mun Choi said that any additional revenue the UM System generates will fund improvements to overall operations and academics.
