tuition

University of Missouri leaders met by teleconference today to discuss tuition and fee increases across the four-campus system.

Curators looked at figures and possible scenarios prepared by the UM vice president Nikke Krawitz.

A 10 percent increase in tuition - the highest increase scenario on the table - would contribute about $44 million to the coffers.

That doesn't even come close, Krawitz says, to meeting an estimated $64 million gap.

But what's the bottom line for Krawitz?

Updated with results of the Board of Curators Meeting:

A tuition increase at the four University of Missouri campuses appears likely in the coming academic year. But how much?

Documents released Thursday say the university will "strive to keep (any) increase to single digit(s)," subject to state support.

A budget overview provided to the board was grim, projecting a $105 million state funding gap.
