Regents approve tuition increase, schedule budget retreat
Feb. 20, 2015
The University of Alaska Board of Regents on Friday approved a 5 percent increase on tuition at campuses throughout the state.
The 8-2 vote came near the end of the regents’ two-day meeting in Anchorage. The change translates to an $8 to $11 per credit hour increase for an in-state undergraduate student.
In September, the board voted against a tuition increase. That was before oil prices dropped and the state’s fiscal scenario changed. Today, the university is anticipating a shortfall of at least $40 million, which includes cost increases for things like utilities, fixed costs, and salary and benefits, as well as an expected decrease in state funding.
