Annual tuition hikes will be a thing of the past for students starting at the University of Arizona this fall.
Incoming freshmen will pay 5.4 percent more than freshmen who started last fall — in exchange for a guarantee that their tuition will stay the same for four years of study.
The change was one of several approved today by the Arizona Board of Regents which oversees the state’s public university system.
Incoming freshmen who live in-state will pay $10,957 a year for base tuition and fees.
In-state undergraduates returning to UA this fall will pay 1.8 percent more, bringing their total for basic tuition and fees to $10,581 for a year of full-time study.
Undergraduates from outside Arizona will pay 5 percent more, for a total of $28,379 a year.
