Missouri residents won’t be paying more in tuition to attend schools in the University of Missouri school system this coming school year.
It’s the first time in five years that Missouri parents and students won’t have to dig deeper into their pockets to attend a University of Missouri school.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the system's Board of Curators approved the in-state tuition freeze yesterday morning during the first of three days of meetings in Columbia.
The freeze applies to the 2014-2015 school year for residents who attend University of Missouri in St. Louis, Columbia, Kansas City and Rolla. Students will pay $8,335 in tuition.
Non-resident undergraduate tuition rates will go up at all campuses starting this summer. Tuition rates for graduate students, including those from Missouri, will increase by 1.5 percent.
