Under the approved plan, incidental fees charged to Missouri undergraduate students will increase by $6 per credit hour to $193.80 per credit hour, and general fees will increase by 50 cents per credit hour to $31.20 per credit hour. This represents a 3.0 percent increase to fees charged to all students. Incidental fees charges for lower division regional campus courses will increase by $4 per credit hour to $125 per credit hour.

Mangels said Southeast’s incidental fees will remain lower than almost every comparable university in the region. Southeast’s incidental fees for fiscal 2013 will be less than the University of Missouri-Columbia’s rate of $269.40 per credit hour, Missouri State University’s rate of $200.48 per credit hour and the University of Central Missouri’s rate of $209.60 per credit hour.

Under the new incidental fee rate schedule approved today, non-resident undergraduate students will be charged an additional $12.50 per credit hour; Missouri graduate students will be charged an additional $8 per credit hour; and non-resident graduate students will be charged an additional $16 per credit hour.

The new per credit hour incidental fee rates charged will be $368.30 per credit hour for non-resident undergraduate students; $249.30 per credit hour for Missouri graduate students; and $465.80 per credit hour for non-resident graduate students.

The general student fee charged to students for FY2013 will be $31.20 per credit hour, which includes the previously approved increase of 50 cents for maintenance and repair. The general fee charged at the regional campuses will remain at $13.50 per credit hour.

Mangels said the University’s Budget Review Committee includes representation from Student Government, which approved a resolution April 17 endorsing a 3 percent fee increase.

Based on increases approved today, total required fees per credit hour charged to students will be $225 for Missouri undergraduates; $399.50 for non-resident undergraduates; $280.50 for resident graduate students; $497 for non-resident graduate students; and $138.50 for lower division courses at the regional campuses.
