Students at the University of Arizona will face a base tuition and fee hike of 3 percent this fall.

The Arizona Board of Regents voted Thursday to raise tuition for UA undergrads who live in Arizona from $10,035 to $10,391for the 2013-14 academic year.

The UA's undergraduate-tuition rates increased by nearly 90 percent between 2008 and 2011.

The state Legislature has cut about $400 million from the state university system since 2008, including more than $180 million in cuts to the UA alone. Adjusted for the Consumer Price Index, per-student funding for the UA is at its lowest level since 1967.
