Possible tuition hikes at University of Arkansas branches

Posted By on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 9:54 AM

On Friday, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees plans to meet to discuss and most likely vote on possible tuition hikes at all campuses, to cover technology needs, rising utility costs and faculty raises.

According to Arkansas News, the proposed 5.29 percent increase for University of Arkansas Fayetteville students would make the cost per year for a full-time student jump from $7,173 to $7,553. The 3.51 percent increased proposed for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff would raise tuition to $5,517. The proposed 3.2 percent increase at the Fort Smith campus would raise tuition to $5,436; a 4.3 percent increase at UALR would raise tuition to $7,343; and a 5.1 percent increase would raise tuition to $5,560 at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.

The proposed 3.09 percent increase at the system's two year colleges would make tuition $2,002 at Cossatot Community College; 3.26 percent to $2,375 at Phillips Community College; 3.67 percent to $2,540 at Community College of Batesville; 2.83 percent to $2,190 at Community College of Hope; and 1.94 percent to $3,150 at Community College at Morrilton.
