MSSU lowers tuition, offers more scholarships

The Joplin Globe reports that Missouri Southern State Universities Board of Governors has voted to reduce tuition by $2/credit hour and offer scholarships for students who receive A+ certification in high school. They also voted to return to admission standards based on a composite of percentile rank on the ACT test and class rank.

The A-Plus program requires students to sign a contract in high school involving spending 50 hours tutoring younger students, maintaining a 2.5 grade average and “following a career path”. Meeting these requirements will get the student a $1,000 scholarship for their first year, renewable for up to four years if a 2.5 GPA is maintained.
