- The University reserves the right to make changes at any time in any or all tuition and fees without advance notice.
- Tuition and Supplemental Fee Assessment
- Assessment of tuition and supplemental fees shall be based on the credit value of a course, a flat fee per semester, or an equivalent value in the case of a zero-credit course. Assessment of tuition and fees shall be made regardless of whether a student is enrolled in a course for credit or auditing a course.

- Tuition Waivers -- The Board delegates to the President of the University of Missouri System or his/her designate the authority to waive all or a portion of the tuition, if deemed appropriate and for sound educational purposes.
- Tax Credit
- For nonresidents who pay Missouri income tax, the nonresident tuition fee shall be credited in an amount equal to the actual Missouri income tax paid for the previous calendar year except that the remaining obligation shall not be less than the amount of the resident tuition. The tax credit shall be offset against the tuition only and not other fees or obligations.
- Unemancipated minor or adult dependent students are eligible by reason of payment of Missouri income tax by the nonresident individual(s) having legal custody of the student.
- For purposes of determining the appropriate previous calendar year in which tax payment credit applies, students entering in January shall be regarded as entering in the fall. For students entering after January, the previous calendar year means the immediate past calendar year.
- To effect a tax credit offset for the nonresident tuition, appropriate evidence of payment, including state income tax return, canceled checks, and Mo-WH-2 form, shall be provided by the student, or representative.
- An approved tax credit may be used only once as an offset to the nonresident tuition. However, if any credit is not fully used in a given academic term it may be carried forward to be used in a subsequent term subject to specified time limitations noted in 230.010.D.3.
- If students from the same family claim allowable tax credit, the tax credit shall be applied as the taxpayer directs; otherwisethe University shall make such determination.
- Effective on the date of adoption hereof, the Board hereby revokes and repeals all previous rules and regulations adopted by the Board authorizing, establishing or limiting the amount of tuition, educational and supplemental course fees. This action shall not be construed to revoke or repeal any schedule or listing of educational and supplemental course fees currently in effect. The Board finds such action to be necessary for the maintenance and operation of the University.
