Tuition is probably going up at all four University of Missouri campuses next year.
The university's Board of Curators met yesterday at the UMSL campus to begin weighing a recommendation that an increase be tied to the nation's inflation rate. The rate is based on the Consumer Price Index for December and won't be known until next month. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that budget projections expect it to be about 1.7 percent.
The board could vote on the amount of the increase in January.
Some non-resident students will pay even more. Graduate and undergraduate students the Columbia campus will see a 3 percent hike. And graduate students at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla will pay 6 percent more next fall.
