MSSU board passes tuition increase

Updated February 15, 2013 at 4:50 PM CST:  Students attending Missouri Southern next fall will have to pay a little more for their education.

The university's board of governor's passed a 2.2% tuition increase on Friday, meaning students will pay an additional $3.72 per credit hour.

For example, if a student takes 12 credit hours they will pay almost $45 more per semester.

Officials say out of state tuition will rise by $7.44 per credit hour to a total of $346.40 per credit hour.

Posted February 12, 2013 at 5:28 PM CST:  A proposed tuition increase means students at Missouri Southern State University could be paying more money for the second year in a row.

At a meeting Monday between the board of governor's budget members the board voted to propose a 2.2% tuition increase for the 2012-2013 school year at the university.

In-state tuition currently sits at around $170 per credit hour.  With the increase students would pay $3 per credit hour which would be an increase of around $45 for 12 credits a semester.

Some students at the university believe that the increase is inevitable and it wouldn't take away the quality of their education.

"I am not surprised - we all know the cost of things go up and I think the benefits will still outweigh the cost of getting our education," says Stacey Tindall, a freshman at Missouri Southern.

The board will vote on the tuition increase in front of the full board on Friday.
