(AP) - The University of Missouri system wants to increase tuition next year by 7.5 percent at its Columbia campus and even more at its campuses in St. Louis and Rolla.
A proposal released Tuesday afternoon spells out proposed in-state tuition hikes of 8.2 percent at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and 9 percent at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla. The Kansas City campus would see a 3 percent increase. Similar increases are being sought for graduate programs and non-resident undergraduates.
The proposals follow a recommended 12.5 percent cut in state funding for higher education in Gov. Jay Nixon's proposed fiscal 2013 budget. That recommendation is subject to lawmaker approval. Under state law, the university system needs state approval to increase resident undergraduate tuition beyond the inflation rate.
