UA Board approves slate of reduced tuition increases

Posted By on Thu, May 23, 2013 at 11:45 AM

More from the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees meeting, courtesy of Fox 16's David Goins on Twitter:

The trustees split sharply, but voted 5-4 for the slate of tuition increases for UA campuses as reduced earlier by a board committee. That panel recommended, for example, a 3.5 percent rise for UALR, rather than the 4.9 percent that had been requested.

The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees also approved similar tuition increases today: 3.3 percent at Jonesboro, 3.5 percent at Beebe, 1.2 percent at Mountain Home and 2.3 percent at Newport.
