New tuition structure approved

On Tuesday, May 17, the University of Missouri Board of Curators voted to approve a new differential tuition structure for each of the University of Missouri System’s four universities, which will go into effect for the Fall 2023 semester. The differential tuition model will consolidate supplemental course fees and the information technology fees into a differential tuition rate based on a student’s primary program of study.

In addition to a differential tuition model, Missouri S&T will implement a flat rate for full-time students taking a course load of 12 to 18 hours in a semester. Under this structure, students are incentivized to take at least 15 hours each semester, which will help them graduate faster. It also offers students flexibility to explore other course options they might not have otherwise considered due to added costs.

Rates for the new model will be determined by the board in spring 2023.

Fall 2022 tuition rates

The board also voted to increase tuition across all four UM universities by approximately 4.5% for undergraduate Missouri residents. With these increases, tuition at UM institutions remains competitive with public research universities in surrounding states.

“Our universities will remain among the most affordable and best value of our peer institutions,” Board of Curators Chair Darryl Chatman said. “These increases ensure we are able to deliver the standard of excellence in education our students expect while remaining competitive.”

Missouri S&T will increase undergraduate resident tuition by $14.30 per credit hour. Tuition for graduate resident students will also increase across all four universities. Resident graduate tuition will increase by $22.50 per credit hours at S&T.
