Proposed tuition increases for the 2014-15 academic year at the University of Alaska were announced Thursday at a Board of Regents meeting in Juneau.
A vote may come on Nov. 6.
The increase, originally proposed by University of Alaska President Pat Gamble, would raise in-state tuition by $6 per credit hour for undergraduate level courses and $12 per credit hour for graduate courses. Non-resident tuition for undergraduate courses would see an $18 increase per credit hour and a $24 increase per credit hour for graduate courses.
The increase would cost a resident undergraduate student taking five classes, or 15 credits, an additional $180 per year.
Should the tuition increase be approved, University of Alaska Southeast students in Juneau would be affected by the change.
