Missouri State Governors Meet in West Plains, Approve 3.5 Percent Tuition Hike

MARCH 9, 2007 - Posted at 3:03 p.m. CST

 

WEST PLAINS, MO - Missouri State University governors today approved a 3.5 percent tuition increase for the school.

Missouri State said the increase was the lowest at the university in seven years.

For the school year starting this fall, the cost of an undergraduate credit hour for Missouri residents will rise from $173 to $179.

Missouri State president Mike Nietzel says the increase will keep the university near the middle in cost for state colleges and universities.

Out-of-state undergraduate fees will increase from $337 to $349 per credit hour.  Basic fees for graduate students will increase from $199 to $206 per credit hour for residents and from $388 to $402 for non-residents.
