University of Alaska considers tuition hikes for the next 2 years

The University of Alaska is considering increasing tuition by 5 percent next academic year and by another 5 percent the year after that.

UA President Jim Johnsen introduced the proposed tuition increases at Thursday's daylong UA Board of Regents meeting in Juneau. The regents will likely vote on the proposal during their November meeting.

"As a result of declining state investment in the university, UA must continue to reduce costs and increase revenues, including tuition, if UA is to maintain and continuously enhance its high quality in teaching, service and research," said a meeting document.

The increases would affect students across the sprawling university system, including those at the universities in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau. They would apply to tuition rates for upper- and lower-division classes as well as graduate classes, according to the proposal.
