Crow does not change in-state tuition as promised, non-residents face increases

ASU administration released their 2015-2016 Tuition Proposal Friday, which does not call for an increase for in-state tuition but does implement a one-year $320 fee for Arizona students.

For ASU, tuition will not raise tuition for any in-state students just as Crow assured ABOR after Ducey announced his cuts in January. Current tuition rates for in-state students will remain the same.

However, the majority of tuition changes will rest on the shoulders of out-of-state students and international students to help make up for the $99 million of cuts to public universities after Gov. Doug Ducey and the state Legislature made in

All non-resident students’ tuition will increase by four percent. This comes with the exception of non-resident undergraduate students at the Lake Havasu campus, which will face no tuition increase.

International undergraduate students will also see a 11.6 percent raise in tuition. For international graduate students tuition will increase by 10.9 percent.

ASU Tuition Proposal (FY16)

  • Non-resident undergraduate students: $24,784 (from $23,830)
  • Non-resident graduate students: $27,086 (from $26,044)
  • International undergraduate students: $26,584 (from $23,830)
  • International graduate students: $28,886 (from $26,055)

The University will also be tacking on a few fees. Barrett, the Honors College as well as the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication will be requesting a $250 per semester increase in their fees for their undergraduate programs.

They will also be adding a variety of other fees for different programs at ASU, both graduate and undergraduate.

The University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University also released their tuition proposals.

UA proposed a 4.07 percent increase for Arizona residents and 10.91 percent for non-residents in their undergraduate programs along with other provisions. NAU, the university that experienced the least amount of funding cuts, will not be increasing tuition for their undergraduate students.
