Ariz. students to weigh in on proposed tuition hikes

Arizona’s college students will get to voice any concerns they have over upcoming tuition changes.

Students can attend hearings at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the state’s three public universities and their satellite campuses in the Phoenix area, Tucson, Flagstaff, Yuma and Sierra Vista.

Arizona State University is proposing to hike tuition by 3 percent for out-of-state undergraduates and in-state and out-of-state grad students in the fall.

The University of Arizona wants to raise tuition by 2.7 percent for new in-state undergraduates and in-state graduates, and by 2.9 percent for out-of-state undergraduates and graduates.

Northern Arizona University wants to raise tuition by 5 percent for new in-state undergraduate students and by 2 percent for new out-of-state undergraduate students. The university also wants to raise tuition for resident graduate students by 5 percent and non-resident grad students by 3 percent.

The Arizona Board of Regents will consider whether to approve the hikes at its meeting in Tucson on April 5.
