Tuition Increase Approved for Arizona’s 3 Public Universities

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Like everything these days, it looks like tuition is going to cost more. On Thursday, the Arizona Board of Regents approved tuition and fee increases for the 2022-23 school year. Students continuing their education at Arizona State University will see a 2.5% increase in in-state tuition. However, most students who continue their studies at Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona will not see an increase.

For incoming ASU students living in Arizona, they will see a 2.5% increase while foreign and international students will see a 4% and 5% tuition increase respectively. It will be for undergraduate and graduate students.

Arizona undergraduate and graduate students heading to UArizona will see their tuition increase by 2% from 2021-2022. New out-of-state students and out-of-state students not participating in the Guaranteed Tuition Program will see a 5.6% tuition increase. Out-of-state graduates will not see an increase. UArizona will charge more for its health and recreation fees, student services fees, and Arizona Financial Aid Trust Fund fees. The university’s college of medicine and veterinary medicine will also see increases.

At NAU, new in-state and out-of-state students will be charged 3.5% more for tuition than last year’s prices. Incoming international undergraduate students will see an increase of 7.4% while international graduate students will see an increase of 7.2%.

The Board of Regents called the tuition hike a “modest additional cost” to students. “The proposals demonstrate the presidents’ joint commitment to prioritizing Arizona, access and quality while protecting resident students as much as possible from extraordinary inflationary cost pressures,” said the president of ABOR, Lyndel Manson, in a statement. The board also pointed out that the three public universities have proven more than $1 billion in student financial aid in fiscal year 2021. For more information, click/tap here.
