ABOR to decide on 2010-11 tuition and fees

The Arizona Board of Regents will vote on tuition, fees and rates for residence halls for the 2010-11 academic year in meetings today and Friday in the North Ballroom of the Student Union Memorial Center.

If the tuition increase passes, in-state undergraduate and graduate tuition would increase by $1,450 to $7,224 and $8,014, respectively. Non-resident tuition could increase by $2,000, to $22,983 for undergraduates and $23,276 for graduate students.

The UA is also asking the regents to consider increasing tuition for students in the College of Medicine for the 2010-11 academic year. The university is proposing tuition be set at $24,772 for Arizona resident medical students and $41,680 for non-resident medical students.

The proposal also includes an increase in base tuition for UA South’s in-state students by $500 for undergraduates, making their tuition $5,453.

Resident graduate students and all non-resident students at UA South would pay the same base tuition as students at the main campus.

The UA is proposing a $404, or 7.4 percent increase for undergraduate housing and a $28, or 3.9 percent monthly increase for graduate housing.

The proposed increase would help pay for the Sixth Street Housing Project and other operations. 

In the afternoon, the UA will request approval for the Bryant Bannister Tree-Ring building. The cost of the proposed building is $12 million. The building will be funded by a gift of $9 million from Agnese Haury and $3 million from local funds.

ABOR will also vote on the appointment of B. Glenn George as UA vice president for legal affairs and general counsel, which would take effect May 17.
