MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Tuition and fees are on the way up at Northwest Missouri State University.
Regents of the Maryville school approved increases this week that will raise tuition 4.5 percent for in-state undergraduates, and 6 percent for out-of-state undergraduates and all graduate students.
The board also approved increases for room and board to help finance improvements at the residence halls.
The university says the combined effect of the increases means in-state undergraduates will pay an average of $248 per credit hour beginning next fall. Undergraduates from out of state will pay about $443 per credit hour.
Regents had approved a tuition increase for in-state undergraduates last year, but it never took effect.
