JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Lincoln University Board of Curators recently decided to add a new fee for students, as well as increase tuition and room and board.
Tuition and room and board are both increasing about 5% for the 2023-24 school year.
The undergraduate flat-rate tuition (12-18 credit hours) for in-state students is increasing by $175.50 (from $3,510 to $3,685.50), while out-of-state residents would see a $365.25 increase (from $7,125 to $7,481.25).
Room-and-board costs are going up as well. Those who live in Dawson, Martin or Perry halls would see a $96.25 increase (from $1,939 to $2,035.95), and the unlimited meal plan would see an increase of $98.25 per semester (from $1,965 to $2,063.25).
Students will be charged a $100 health services fee for the first time.
The school estimates the total increase for in-state students would be $470, while out-of-state students would see a $650.75 increase.
