ST. LOUIS — Several Missouri universities have released their tuition structures for the 2023-2024 school year.

The University of Missouri Board of Curators approved tuition and fees for the 2023-24 academic year, implementing a new structure to enhance predictability and reduce student debt. The differential tuition model eliminates course fees and provides clarity on program costs.

“We already have the highest graduation rates among all public universities in Missouri and the new tuition structure will enable our students to complete their undergraduate degrees sooner, thereby reducing cost of attendance. I’m so proud that our graduates have a 95% placement rate, one of the highest in the country,” states Mun Choi, president of the University of Missouri.

The University of Missouri-Columbia and Missouri University of Science and Technology will introduce plateau rates for undergraduates, encouraging faster graduation and potential savings. Graduate students will have differential tuition based on their field of study, without plateau rates.
