UAF Department considers 25% tuition hike


The University Of Alaska Fairbanks School Of Management wants to hike tuition for its students.
The proposal by Dean Mark Herrmann would boost tuition by 25 percent for the School of Management's upper–division and graduate courses starting in the 2014–15 academic year.
In a letter to the University of Alaska Board of Regents, Herrmann stated that the school needs more revenue.
State funding and across–the–board tuition increases haven't been enough to offset anticipated deficits at the School of Management.
The board will consider the proposal at the second day of their meeting, today in Sitka.
