Undergraduate Tuition and Fees will Increase 3.8 Percent
February 17, 2012
Room, board, tuition and fees for traditional undergraduate resident students at Lindenwood University will increase 3.8 percent in the fall of 2012 to $22,180 per year from their 2011 level of $21,360 per year.
Lindenwood’s Board of Directors approved the increase at its meeting on Friday, Feb. 10. Lindenwood President James D. Evans said the increase is necessary because of rising costs of operation and stressed that the school works hard to keep increases at a minimum. He also pointed out that a Lindenwood education is still a bargain, particularly considering steep increases currently being considered at Missouri’s public universities.
Students in Lindenwood’s accelerated evening program, LCIE, will see a 4.3 percent tuition increase. Starting in the summer 2012 quarter, the cost of a nine-hour cluster of undergraduate courses will be $3,060 per quarter, and the cost of a nine-hour cluster of graduate courses will be $3,708.
Lindenwood University, founded in 1827, is an independent liberal arts university offering more than 120 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.
