Missouri Colleges Freeze Tuition, Increase Money For Scholarships
Undergraduate students at Missouri’s colleges and universities will pay the same for tuition next year that they’re paying this year, and there will be more money made available for scholarships. Governor Jay Nixon signed the state’s higher education budget Wednesday during a visit to Missouri State University. The spending plan freezes tuition and fees for the fall semester and includes a four-million dollar increase for Access Missouri scholarships. This is the fourth tuition freeze Governor Nixon has secured since taking office in 2009.
