For the 2018‐19 academic year, the University of Missouri Board of Curators approved a 2.1 percent increase in the Missouri Resident Undergraduate tuition charge, the amount allowed under current state law.  However, as a result of an agreement reached with the general assembly to protect the university’s state appropriation, the campus will waive part of that increased charge and will only require payment of 1 percent more than the previous semester in Fall 2018.  This waiver will be re‐evaluated for Spring 2019 and in future years.

The university reserves the right to modify by increase or decrease the fees charged for attendance and other services at the university, including but not limited to tuition or educational fees, at any time when in the discretion of the governing board the same is in the best interest of the University, provided that no increases can or will be effective unless approved by the governing board not less than thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the academic term (semester, etc.) to which the fees are applicable, with all modification of fees to be effective irrespective as to whether fees have or have not been paid by or on behalf of a student prior to the effective date of the modification.
