Missouri State tuition steady unless funding cut
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Students at Missouri State University will pay the same tuition rate in the 2010-11 school year -- unless the state cuts funding even more than the previous agreement.
Missouri's public colleges earlier agreed to hold the line on tuition in exchange for a modest 5.2 percent cut in state appropriations.
Missouri State's board of governors on Friday formally agreed to no tuition increase, but also approved a $5-per-credit increase effective only if the budget is slashed further than expected.
The action comes as state lawmakers are still trying to come to grips with a $500 million budget deficit.
The board also agreed to raise room and board fees by 6.5 to 6.8 percent, depending on the type of residence and food plan.
