Tuition Fees Rise OK for Arizona’s 3 Public Universities

PHOENIX (AP) — The board of trustees that oversees Arizona’s three public universities on Thursday approved modest tuition increases for incoming freshmen who are in-state residents and larger increases for non-residents.

Only Arizona State University has raised base tuition for current in-state students, increasing tuition by 2.5%. Non-residents will see their tuition fees increase by 4% and international students by 5%. This same increase will also affect incoming freshmen, bringing tuition for the 2022-2023 school year to $10,978 for resident undergraduates and $12,014 for graduate students who reside in Arizona.

Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona have kept their promise not to impose tuition increases on the vast majority of students during their four years of undergraduate study.

NAU freshman tuition increases by 3.5%, bringing tuition to $11,024. Graduate students will also see a 3.5% increase at NAU and pay $11,390 per year.

At UofA, tuition for undergraduate residents increases by 2% to $11,525 per year. Graduate students will also see a 2% increase to $12,348 per year.

The Arizona Board of Regents also approved mandatory fee changes at the three universities and housing fee increases of 3% to 3.5% at the three universities. All but the UofA also raised meal plan costs.

Room and board costs vary, but may exceed tuition fees.

Housing plans at NAU range from $6,000 per year to over $8,000, while meal plans can exceed $6,000 per year. At ASU’s Tempe campus, housing starts at over $10,000 per year and meal plans cost over $5,000 per year. University of Arizona housing options currently start at $6,400 per year and can reach nearly $9,000 in shared dorms and well over $10,000 in some accommodations. Meal plans vary but can exceed $5,000.
