The Murray State University Board of Regents will authorize tuition and mandatory fee rates and housing and dining rates for the next academic year in a special meeting on Friday.
MSU is considering a 5% tuition increase. President Bob Davies has said 3% would cover fixed costs and 2% would go toward one-time expenditures. Davies outlined this increase in a forum earlier this month.
The board will review a summary outlining the next budget, which is expected to have action in June. Davies has said $1.1 million dollars will be cut from specific units and another $3 million at the macro level.
There will also be board action involving ‘Intercollegiate Athletics.’ Some media outlets have speculated Murray State potentially leaving the Ohio Valley Conference to fill a vacancy in the Missouri Valley Conference, but the President’s Office would not confirm if this will be the discussion.
