NEOSHO, Mo. — The Crowder College Board of Trustees on Thursday proposed increasing in-district tuition by $1 per credit hour, to $78 per credit hour.

Students who live outside of the Neosho, Diamond, Seneca, East Newton and McDonald County School districts pay the higher out-district rate, which would increase by $2 to $107 per credit hour in the fall.

The board will vote on the proposal at its next meeting.

Also proposed was an increase from $766 to $1,100 per semester for a double-occupancy dorm room.

Students interviewed about the tuition proposal said they weren’t troubled by it.
