COLUMBIA, Mo. – In-state undergraduate students at Missouri universities will pay 1 percent more in tuition for the upcoming school year.

The University of Missouri Board of Curators on Monday approved a 2.1 percent increase, which reflects inflation rates and the maximum allowed by state law.

In-state undergraduates will see a 1 percent increase, under a deal made with state lawmakers, who agreed not to reduce state funding for universities.

The legislature passed a bill last week that would keep funding for the universities at $395.8 million. The bill is awaiting Gov. Eric Gretiens’ signature.

The Columbia Missourian reports graduate, out-of-state and international students will pay 2.1 percent more and professional school students could see tuition increases anywhere from 1.2 to 6 percent depending on the program.
