CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - Students living on campus at Southeast Missouri State University will pay a little more next school year.

The university Board of Regents yesterday agreed to raise rates an average of five percent.  The actual amount varies depending on the residence hall.  Some room rates are going up as little as four percent.  Others are rising eight percent.

The most popular meal plan, 15 meals per week plus $140 in flex money, will cost students $2,070 annually.
