University of Missouri system proposes increased tuition and fees

The four-campus University of Missouri system is proposing raising tuition and required fees for in-state undergraduates by 2.1 percent for the fiscal year that begins in July.  

System officials consider the increases announced Thursday "modest'' and say they will generate $14.4 million in revenues. The administrators cite "significant financial and budgetary pressures'' on the campuses in Columbia, St. Louis, Kansas City and Rolla. Tuition and fees at Columbia would rise by $199 per semester, while the increase for students at the Kansas City campus would be $192.  

Enrollment at the Columbia campus for the 2016-17 academic year dropped by 2,182 from the previous year. That's a 6.2 percent decline and the lowest enrollment since 2010.  

The system's governing board will vote on the proposals next month.
