JUNEAU -- A proposed tuition increase is on the agenda when the University of Alaska Board of Regents meets in Juneau Sept. 27 and 28.
UA President Pat Gamble proposed raising tuition by 2 percent for resident undergraduates. The university system says this would be the lowest increase in over a decade.
Gamble also proposed a 4 percent increase for nonresident undergraduates, and a 2 percent increase to the graduate resident and nonresident rate.
This would apply to all UA campuses and take effect beginning in the fall of 2013.
UA, in a news release announcing the proposal, said an undergraduate, full-time student enrolled in 15 credits, could expect an increase of $45-$60 per semester. Information provided by the system shows the increase would be $105-$204 per semester for out-of-state, full-time undergraduates.
