Southeast regents raise fees
Southeast Missouri State University will increase room and board fees by just over 5 percent on average for the next academic year to cover increased housing and food service costs.
The school's board of regents unanimously approved the fee increases Wednesday.
The regents also voted to raise student parking fees, partly to cover increased student labor costs resulting from the increase in the minimum wage. Parking fees will increase from $10 to $20 over the next two years, depending on the type of permit, school officials said.
In setting the new parking fees, the board also established a new preferred permit for students to park at the River Campus.
