UA Approves Tuition Increase
The university says it evaluates tuition each year. UA President, Pat Gamble, proposed the 'modest' 2 percent raise for tuition costs.
ANCHORAGE - Friday (9/28) the Alaska Board of Regents approved what they are calling the lowest increase in more than a decade. University officials say that even though the tuition is being increased students are supporting the hike. The 2 percent increase is the lowest in the last ten years. Those who have been students on this campus in recent years say they have noticed their tuition slowly rise.
UA says they want to strike a balance between helping generate resources to provide programs and services while keeping the cost of attending affordable. They also say students support and appreciate the limited increase.
