University of Missouri students on tight budgets are getting some good news. The University system’s Financial Vice President, Natalie Krawitz, indicates further tuition increase are likely to be modest and will probably be close to the rate of inflation over the next four years. In a report delivered to the MU Board of Curators, Krawitz outlines three possible scenarios for state support through the 2008 fiscal year. In the best case, the University would be spared any further state cuts for a couple of years and then would get increases of 2-percent to 3-percent. The worst case scenario sees state funding levelling off after more cuts.
