PHOENIX — Incoming and current undergraduates at Arizona's three public universities got some good news on Thursday: Their tuition will not increase for the 2021-2022 school year.
The Arizona Board of Regents announced Thursday that there would be no increase in undergraduate resident tuition at Arizona State University, University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University.
The announcement marks the second consecutive year that there would be no increase in undergraduate resident tuition at those universities.
There will also be no tuition increase for current and incoming students, both undergraduate and graduate, resident and non-resident, at Arizona State University for the upcoming school year.
“The past year has been incredibly challenging for our public universities and their students and families,” Chair Larry E. Penley said in a statement.
“We recognize the financial hardship faced by many students due to the pandemic and its impacts on the economy, so we appreciate the efforts of university presidents who have avoided any tuition increase for Arizona resident undergraduates for two consecutive years," the statement continued.
"As Arizona begins to emerge from this pandemic, ASU, NAU and UArizona will play a vital role in aiding our economic recovery and preparing these students for the workforce they’ll soon join.”
