Arizona Universities Seek Tuition Increases For New Students

Arizona’s three public universities have released proposed in-state tuition rates for the upcoming school year.

The vast majority of in-state undergraduates, currently enrolled at Northern Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, would see no change in their tuition. Incoming UA students would see a 1 percent tuition increase and some mandatory fees go up. New NAU students will see about a 3 percent increase.

Arizona State University is asking for a 1.5 percent hike for all students, which equals $150, as well as some new fees.

The Board of Regents will be hearing public comment later this month on the proposed changes and is expected to finalize the tuition and fees in early April.

Will Stone grew up with the sounds of public radio. As a senior field correspondent, he strives to tell the same kind of powerful stories that got him into the business — whether that means trudging through some distant corner of the Sonoran Desert or uncovering an unknown injustice right down the street. Since joining the KJZZ newsroom in 2015, he has covered political scandals, fights over the future of energy, and efforts to care for some of Arizona’s most vulnerable communities. His pieces have also aired on national programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Here & Now and Marketplace. Before coming to KJZZ, he reported for public radio stations in Nevada and Connecticut. Stone received his degree in English literature from Haverford College, where he also wrote about the arts and culture scene in Philadelphia. After graduating, he interned at NPR West in Culver City, California, where he learned from some of the network’s veteran reporters and editors. When he doesn’t have a mic in hand, Stone enjoys climbing mountains, running through his central Phoenix neighborhood and shamelessly promoting his cat, Barry.
