Subject: UA Announces Tuition Proposal

Date: April 15, 2015

There will be no increase in tuition and mandatory fees for University of Arizona students who signed up for the inaugural Guaranteed Tuition Plan last fall — an offer that will be extended to continuing students if the Arizona Board of Regents approves the UA's 2015-16 tuition proposal.

The proposed plan for incoming undergraduate students also would include mandatory fees, with a resident rate of $11,403 and a nonresident rate of $32,630 locked in for the next four years.

The tuition increase covers less than half of this year's cut of $28.5 million in state funding. The remainder will be made up with cuts to University programs and reallocations to strategic initiatives.

The UA introduced guaranteed tuition to keep college costs more stable and predictable for Arizona students and parents who had seen tuition double when state support fell dramatically over the last several years. The Guaranteed Tuition Plan is adjusted for each incoming class and applies to both resident and nonresident students.

ABOR has scheduled a public hearing for 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, April 20, to discuss the tuition recommendations made by the three state universities. The UA main campus site will be the Gallagher Theater in the Student Union Memorial Center, and the UA South at Sierra Vista site will be in the Academic Technology Building, Room B153.

On May 4 at 2 p.m., ABOR will vote on tuition and fees at a videoconference at its office in Phoenix. The videoconference will be shown at the UA’s Old Main Boardroom, Room 227.
