Community Colleges Get A Cut & Freeze As Well

Missouri community colleges have agreed to the same deal that Missouri's 4-year public institutions signed off on earlier this week -- a tuition freeze in exchange for a 5 percent cut to their budget.
The 5.2 percent reduction amounts to an $8 million dollar budget cut.
If approved by the state legislature, for the second year in a row, in-state students and their families won’t see tuition or academic fees rise by a penny.
Prior to last year’s freeze, tuition at Missouri’s public four-year colleges and universities increased by an average of 7.5 percent a year over the past decade.
