If Missouri College Students Could Party Like It’s 1999, They’d Save About 61% On Tuition

Missouri state funding hasn’t kept up with student enrollment or inflation, higher education experts say, and that has colleges relying on tuition and fees to close the gap. Adjusted for inflation, state funding for public four-year colleges has dropped 46% per student since 2000, according to KCUR’s analysis of state data obtained through a public records request. Community colleges have seen a 44% decrease.
