For Alaska residents, that means lower division classes for the 2017-2018 school year will cost $202 per credit hour at all campuses except Kodiak and the Prince William Sound College, which will be slightly cheaper.

Upper division classes jump to $244 per credit hour, and graduate courses will ring in at $466 per credit.

Non-resident tuition increases to more than $513 per credit.

The Board of Regents approved the increase November 10 at its meeting in Fairbanks.

The tuition rate goes into effect starting with the Fall 2017 semester.
