In its monthly meeting today, the UM System Board of Curators voted to raise tuition and fees on all four system campuses. These changes will take effect at the beginning of the 2018 fiscal year, which starts July 1.

Undergraduate tuition on all four campuses will be going up by about 2 percent. Nonresident graduate students at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla will feel the greatest increase. Their tuition will go up 6 percent.

These hikes come in the midst of 8 to 12 percent financial cuts across the UM system due to state funding changes and decreasing enrollment on its flagship Columbia campus.
