COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- University of Missouri curators meet Friday with an agenda topped by an expected 5.5 percent average increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates.
The planned increase meets the goal of keeping any tuition hikes below 10 percent. Tuition has remained flat at the system's four campuses the past two years.
The proposed hikes vary from 4.7 percent at the St. Louis campus to 6.6 percent at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla.
The Columbia campus wants a 5.8 percent increase, while the Kansas City campus is recommending a 4.8 percent increase.
