The University of Missouri Board of Curators has voted to raise tuition at the four campuses approximately 2.3 percent. With steady enrollment, officials indicate that the change would generate approximately 14.8 million dollars. Over the next several months, officials will also explore possible changes in the tuition model beyond 2020 that would provide students and parents with a simpler, more predictable bill with fewer fees and a faster path to completion. The tuition increase and potential changes to the tuition model come as the university faces significant financial pressure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the current fiscal year, which ends June 30th, the University of Missouri System has been subject to withholdings of 52 million dollars in state revenue. The system has also provided more than 30 million dollars in refunds to students, including refunds for room and board costs when the universities went to remote learning in March.
