The Board of Regents has made changes to tuition and fees at Southeast Missouri State University.
There was unanimous approval for a 2.1 percent increase to tuition. However, the board waived all but one percent of that.
The current rate is about $206 per credit hour, but it will raise to $247.
They’ll be presenting a full budget to the board when they meet in June.
Southeast fell short of their budget of $6.3 million for 2019 because of the governor’s cut to university funding last year.
The Legislature now has passed a budget that does not cut university funding so long as the university does not raise tuition more than one percent.
