Room, board, tuition and fees for traditional undergraduate resident students at Lindenwood University will increase 3.4 percent in the fall of 2013 to $22,940 per year from their 2012 level of $22,180 per year.
Lindenwood’s Board of Directors approved the increase at its meeting on Friday, Feb. 8. Lindenwood President James D. Evans said the increase is prompted by rising operating costs, some of which, he stressed, the university absorbs.
Students in Lindenwood’s accelerated evening program, LCIE, will see a 4.1 percent tuition increase in undergraduate tuition and a 3.9 percent increase in graduate tuition. Starting in the summer 2013 quarter, the cost of a nine-hour cluster of undergraduate courses will be $3,186 per quarter, and the cost of a nine-hour cluster of graduate courses will be $3,852, reflecting increases of $126 and $144, respectively.
Lindenwood University, founded in 1827, is an independent liberal arts university offering more than 130 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in diverse areas of study¬ in traditional and accelerated formats. Lindenwood operates residential campuses in historic St. Charles, Mo., and Belleville, Ill., as well as extension sites throughout the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
