The University of Arizona could raise tuition by 3 percent if the Arizona Board of Regents approves the fee proposal for academic year 2013-2014.

Under the UA recommendation, resident undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees for the main campus would climb to $10,391, up from $10,035 in 2012-13. For non-residents, tuition and fees would total $27,073, up from $26,231.

“As a result of an improved state budget outlook, and the presidents’ sound fiscal planning and use of greater operating efficiencies, we are able to hold the line with modest tuition increases,” said Rick Myers, chair of the Arizona Board of Regents.

The UA proposal also includes an $80 fee increase for the libraries. No other mandatory fee increases appear in the proposal.

Graduate students at the university would pay $11,511, up from $11,122. Tuition for out-of-state graduate students would be $27,383, up from $26,533, according to UA data.

The Arizona Board of Regents oversees the state’s three public universities and will decide on tuition at the April 4 meeting.

Before making a final decision, ABOR will hold a videoconference public hearing March 27 at each of the three universities.
