UA Regents Approve Tuition Hike
The University of Alaska Board of Regents have voted 9-1 to increase tuition.
The board on Friday approved what the university system is calling the lowest increase in over a decade.
The board, meeting in Juneau, approved UA President Pat Gamble’s proposal to raise tuition by 2 percent for resident undergraduates and a 4 percent increase for non-resident undergraduates. Regents also approved a 2 percent increase to the graduate resident and non-resident rate.
This would apply to all UA campuses and take effect beginning in the fall of 2013.
The university says an undergraduate, full-time student enrolled in 15 credits should expect an increase of $45-$60 per semester. Information provided by the system shows the increase would be $105-$204 per semester for out-of-state, full-time undergraduates.
