A new tuition structure, approved by the University of Missouri System Board of Curators in May, goes into effect in the fall. Under this new structure, undergraduate and graduate non-resident tuition rates will increase by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) of 2.1 percent. This increase complies with a state law that requires public colleges and universities to limit tuition increases to the CPI. For undergraduate students who are residents of Missouri, however, tuition will increase by 1 percent as the result of an agreement with the Missouri General Assembly.
In addition, the curators approved a new tuition rate for international students that is $75 per credit hour above the non-resident (out-of-state) rate. More information on tuition, fees and other costs is available on the future students website.
Missouri S&T continues to be a great investment. The average starting salary for graduates with bachelor’s degrees is over $62,000, and the average starting salaries for graduates with master’s degrees is now nearly $81,000. Ph.D. graduates also have strong starting salaries, averaging over $74,500. This great return on investment is why S&T is one of the top three engineering schools in the nation, as ranked by USAToday and CollegeFactual.com, and why we are No. 6 in the nation for return on investment, according to PayScale.com.
