Northwest Board votes no increase for in-state tuition

In-state undergraduate tuition rates will remain the same at Northwest Missouri State University for fiscal year 2015. The Board of Regents voted to keep tuition at last year's level provided Governor Nixon's budget proposal for the University is unchanged by the Missouri General Assembly. Out-of-State tuition will increase one and a half percent and room and board will increase approximately three percent. Northwest Vice-President of Finance, Stacy Carrick says the board's action will help stabilize the fiscal year 2015 university budget.
