Northwest Board of Regents approves $200 tuition increase

In an effort to offset budget cuts to higher education in Missouri, the Northwest Missouri State University Board of Regents has approved a tuition increase for the 2017-18 academic year. Northwest Vice-President of Finance Stacy Carrick says the increase for undergraduate resident students is based on what's allowed from the current Consumers Price Index.

Carrick says the tuition increase equates to just under 200 dollars for each student for the upcoming academic year. The Board also approved a 2.6 percent increase for meal plans and one percent increase for housing which equates to approximately 150 dollars per student. A second proposal includes a student-approved tuition request which is currently being evaluated by the Student Senate Fee Committee.

Carrick adds the Board's action is just part of the University's overall plan to make up for lost revenue from the State of Missouri.
