The presidents of Arizona's three state universities are proposing to increase revenues through tuition or fee increases in the coming school year to make up for part of a $99 million cut in state funding.
The University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University are proposing 3 percent increases in tuition for incoming freshman. Students currently enrolled on guaranteed tuition plans would see no increase.
Arizona State University is taking a different approach and will charge all new and existing in-state students a one-time $320 surcharge for the 2015-2016 school year while keeping tuition flat. That also equates to about a 3 percent hike.
The proposals released Friday are the first move in a multi-step process leading up to a May decision by the Board of Regents on tuition and fees.
