Students at all University of Missouri campuses will have to pay more for tuition next year. The UM System Board of Curators approved a plan Thursday to raise in-state tuition by 0.8 percent. The new plan will also raise tuition for non-Missouri residents by three percent at the Columbia, St. Louis, and Rolla campuses.
The plan passed with a 6-to-1 vote. David Steelman, the lone curator who voted against the increase, warned the board that constantly raising tuition could have negative long-term effects.
