Arizona universities ask for tuition increases

Students at Arizona’s three public universities would pay three to five percent more in tuition next year, under requests made by the schools. ASU and UofA are each asking for three percent increases, while NAU is asking for a five percent hike. Board of Regents Chair Rick Myers says he’s pleased with the proposals, which he calls reasonable. He says even with a tough economy, and reduction in state funding over the past several years, the universities have been able to keep their requests for higher tuition fairly modest.
