The University of Missouri System has proposed not increasing tuition for resident undergraduate students at its four campuses next school year.
Despite the proposal, which was given at Thursday’s Board of Curators meeting at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, some fees are set to rise by variable amounts at the system’s campuses.
The curators will take a final vote this spring on tuition for the 2016-17 school year. The proposal is a result of low inflation, state law and a suggestion from Gov. Jay Nixon.
In September, Nixon said state college and university leaders had agreed to freeze tuition for next year in exchange for the governor asking for a $55.7 million, or 6 percent, increase in higher education funding.
