At noon Friday, the presidents of Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona will release their tuition proposals, followed by public comment and a vote by the Arizona Board of Regents expected April 7.

At this time last year, Governor Doug Ducey signed a budget that cut $99 million in state aid to Arizona’s three public universities.

Undergraduate students who lived in Arizona faced no tuition increase at ASU for the current year, but they did get hit with an extra $300 fee. Undergrads at NAU and U of A who enrolled in a tuition guarantee program saw no hike, but new students did. So did graduate students and non-Arizona students at all three schools.

The President of the Arizona Board of Regents, the group that oversees public universities, has called the governor’s current budget proposal "modest."
