UA Tuition Increase

A proposed tuition increase is on the agenda when the University of Alaska Board of Regents meets in Juneau Sept. 27 and 28.
UA President Pat Gamble proposed raising tuition by 2 percent for resident undergraduates.

The university system says this would be the lowest increase in over a decade.

Gamble also proposed a 4 percent increase for non–resident undergraduates, and 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.

UA, in a news release announcing the proposal, said an undergraduate, full–time student enrolled in 15 credits, could 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.
