University Of Missouri System Announces 2.3% Tuition Hike

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Tuition is going up at the University of Missouri’s four campuses in Columbia, St. Louis, Kansas City and Rolla after they took a financial hit because of the coronavirus pandemic. The University of Missouri Board of Curators approved the 2.3% tuition increase on Thursday. If enrollment remains steady, it will generated about $14.8 million. UM system president and interim MU chancellor Mun Choi described the tuition increase in a news release as among the lowest around the country. It is equal to the amount of inflation.
