UA Regents increase tuition

By September 28, 2012Education

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.

Meeting in Juneau, the board 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.

The increases would apply to all UA campuses and take effect beginning in the fall of 2013.

The university says a full-time undergraduate 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 undergraduate students.
