ASU In-State Undergraduate Students Will Not Pay More Next Year
In-state undergrads at Arizona State University can breathe a sigh of relief. President Michael Crow said he will not ask them to pay more next year. The university president said he will not ask the Board of Regents to hike tuition for Arizona undergraduate students in the 2014-2015 school year. Crow said that applies to current and new undergraduate students from Arizona, but he has not made a decision yet on tuition levels for out-of-state undergraduates or for graduate students, regardless of where they are from.
Crow said he is committed to using what he calls "innovation and operational efficiency'' to make education available to all who are able and willing to do the work. The university will present its formal tuition proposal to the regents in the spring.
Crow said he is making his announcement now so students and their families have more time to plan.
