Northern Arizona University signLast week, Northern Arizona University announced its proposed tuition plan for the 2017-18 academic year. The proposal included:

  • Maintaining the university’s Pledge program for the 10th straight year, resulting in no tuition increase for 98 percent of continuing undergraduate students on the Flagstaff campus.
  • A one-year moratorium on new fees and fee increases, with the exception of an increase to the existing Honors Program fee that corresponds with the development of NAU’s new Honors College.
  • Moving to one undergraduate and one graduate credit hour base rate structure for students enrolled in NAU online.
  • A 2.6 percent increase for new undergraduate residents on the Flagstaff campus, and a 2.9 percent increase for new nonresident undergraduates on the Flagstaff campus.

A complete list of the proposed tuition changes of NAU’s campuses throughout the state can be viewed online.

Northern Arizona University will hold an interactive tuition hearing via videoconference in conjunction with the Arizona Board of Regents, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 28.

The NAU hearing will be conducted in Flagstaff in the Babbitt Administration Center, Room 206 and in Yuma at NAU-Yuma’s Academic Complex (AC), Room 111.  The hearing also will be streamed online.

Regents will accept comments via e-mail to the Arizona Board of Regents at tuition@azregents.edu; by regular mail at 2020 N. Central Ave., Suite 230, Phoenix, AZ 85004; or by fax at (602) 229-2555.
