Regents approve tuition hikes at Arizona state universities
TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Arizona Board of Regents approved the tuition proposals of the state's three public universities for the 2014-15 academic year.
The board approved the tuition recommendations at a meeting Thursday in Tucson.
The University of Arizona had proposed a 2 percent tuition increase for in-state students in the fall and a 5 percent hike for nonresidents.
Arizona State University submitted a proposal last month with no tuition increase for resident undergraduate students and a 3 percent hike for non-resident students.
Northern Arizona University proposed keeping tuition costs stable for undergraduate students currently on the eight-semester Pledge program. But the Flagstaff school was seeking a 2.6 percent tuition increase for incoming in-state freshmen and 1.9 percent for new nonresident undergraduate students.
