UM approves some fee increases at curators meeting

The UM System Board of Curators met Feb. 2 and 3 to discuss whether to raise tuition and fees at the four UM campuses.

Curators were presented with a proposal to raise tuition and fees to an average of 6.5 percent for fiscal year 2013.

No vote was made, and is not expected till late February. However, the curators did decide to increase other fees, among them a 3.3 percent increase to the information technology fee.

Some MU colleges and schools, the curators decided, will receive a hike to their supplemental course fees.

The Trulaske College of Business courses, for example, will receive a 32.8 percent increase, while the School of Journalism courses will receive an 18.3 percent increase.
