Multi-year tuition proposals announced for Arizona’s public universities
March 10, 2023
Presidents of Arizona’s three public universities released their proposed six-year maximum growth rates for resident tuition, academic fees, and meal and housing plans today.
Earlier this year, the board approved a new multi-year tuition structure to increase cost predictability for resident students at Arizona’s public universities, including setting maximum tuition growth rates that encompass a six-year cycle with the board revisiting tuition rates during the fourth year of the six-year cycle.
Following a committee presentation and public hearing, the board is anticipated to take possible action on the proposals on April 20.
Proposals are available through the links below:
Next steps in the tuition setting process are:
- Presentation of proposals, March 23 - The presidents will present their multi-year proposals to the Arizona Board of Regents Capital, Finance and Resources Committee meeting at Arizona State University. Committee information will post here on March 16.
- Public hearing, March 28, 3 – 5 p.m. - The board will hold a virtual, livestreamed public hearing for students and individuals to comment on the tuition proposals.
