Tuition to Increase 2.9 Percent

March 11, 2011

Lindenwood University’s Board of Directors has approved a 2.9 percent increase in tuition, room and board and other fees for undergraduate resident students for the 2011-2012 academic year.

President James D. Evans announced the tuition increase this week. He said the increase was “modest and necessary” to maintain the quality academic programs at Lindenwood, hire additional faculty members, and cover increasing operational and technology costs.

The increase amounts to $305 per semester for a typical resident undergraduate. Tuition is going up $195 to $6,825 per semester; room costs increase $50 to $1,865 per semester; board costs increase $25 to $1640 per semester; and the health and activity fee increases $35 to $175 per semester.

Evans said the full-time graduate tuition will also increase 2.9 percent to $6,825 per semester, while the graduate LCIE tuition increases 3.9 percent for a nine-hour cluster to $3,555. Part-time undergraduate and graduate tuition will increase 3.9 percent. Increases for the LCIE program go into effect this summer after the new fiscal year begins July 1.

“The board was pleased that we were able to keep our increases minimal,” said Evans. “Higher education budgets are being slashed across the state and tuition increases at many schools are twice that of Lindenwood’s.”

Lindenwood tuition increases have averaged 2.5 percent annually over the past five years, or about one-half the average rate of increase nationally.
