Nonresident students face Mizzou tuition hike
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Out-of-state and graduate students could be paying more to attend the University of Missouri this fall.
School officials are recommending a 5 percent tuition increase for nonresident undergraduates at the Columbia campus and a 2.7 percent increase in graduate school tuition for all students.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that undergraduate tuition for Missouri residents would stay flat, although state lawmakers will have the final say.
Some graduate students could face even steeper fee increases. Out-of-state students in the School of Veterinary Medicine would have to pay an extra $10,000. And course fees in the Trulaske College of Business would more than double.
The Board of Curators for the four-campus system will consider the proposals at a meeting Thursday and Friday.
