CAPE GIRARDEAU — Southeast Missouri State University regents, seeking to reduce the budget by $7.76 million over the next two years, have agreed to raise some fees and cut a business program.

The board met Thursday in Cape Girardeau and agreed to a $5 increase in undergraduate and graduate application fees for those seeking admission starting in the summer of next year. Returning students will pay a $15 application fee starting next spring.

The Southeast Missourian reported that regents also approved elimination of the Management Information Systems program. A study recommended its removal based on lack of interest among students.
