Tuition hikes for Arizona schools approved

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Board of Regents has approved tuition increases at the state's three public universities.
    
Students at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona face 3 percent tuition increases, while Northern Arizona University's incoming students will pay 5 percent more.
    
The board unanimously approved the changes Thursday during a meeting in Tucson.
    
Board chairman Rick Myers also told students living illegally in Arizona that he had directed staff to look at reduced tuition for youths who receive work visas under the Obama administration's deferred deportation program benefiting young immigrants. Under Arizona law, those immigrants do not qualify for in-state tuition.
    
Under the tuition increases, ASU resident undergraduates would pay up to $9,500, UA would cost roughly $10,400, and new resident undergraduate students at NAU would owe $9,700.
