Tuition on the rise infographicFull-time undergraduate and graduate students returning to Lindenwood in the fall will see a 2.9 percent tuition increase while LCIE students will see a 3 percent increase beginning in the summer quarter.

According to a March 6 press release, LU’s Board of Directors approved the increase on Feb. 27.

LU’s undergraduate rate has increased by 2.9-3.8 percent for the past five years.

President James Evans said last year that the students will continue to see tuition increases, likely between 2 and 3 percent, to cover rising university expenses.

The 2.9 percent undergraduate tuition increase is $442, with residents also seeing a $54 board increase.
Graduate students will have to pay an additional $221 for tuition.
