Missouri State University Springfield campus will waive collecting $2.00 per credit hour of the approved $4.00 per credit hour increase over 2017-2018 tuition for Missouri resident undergraduate students and will waive collecting $8.00 of the $13.00 per semester increase for student services fees, which will result in an increase of 1% for Missouri resident undergraduate full time students for the 2018-19 academic year under the terms of the Higher Education Student Funding Act, provided both of the following conditions are met for the 2018-19 academic year:
