NEO A&M to keep tuition flat another year

MIAMI, Okla. – Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) will not be raising tuition for the second year in a row.

“It has been a tough year for everyone involved in education, and we felt it was in the best interest of students and their families to hold tuition flat as we rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Kyle Stafford, NEO President. “We appreciate our legislators for their work to increase state appropriations for higher education, which helped make this possible.”

State appropriations were increased by just over 4.5% for fiscal year 2022, this translates to an increase of around $300,000 for NEO. However, many institutions have announced tuition increases due to enrollment downturns during 2020-21. NEO Administrators did approve a 3.1% increase for some food service options.

“We are committed to quality, affordable, and face-to-face courses,” added Stafford. “We are excited to resume normal operations and a full schedule of activities.”

NEO’s fall semester begins on August 23 and enrollment is available now. Over 85% of NEO students receive some form of financial assistance and federal financial aid limits have been increased for the 2021-22 school year.
