ASU Board of Trustees to consider tuition increase

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees will consider an increase in tuition and fees on Friday.

According to the agenda, the campuses requested an approval to adjust tuition and fees.

One of several fees going up is the in-state undergraduate tuition.

The current tuition for a student who takes 15 credits per semester is $2,880.

The proposed adjustment for the Fall 2015 semester would increase that to $3,000.

Another adjustment at the Jonesboro campus would increase a credit hour from $480 to $580 for an MBA. 

That proposal would go into effect during the second summer term.

The athletics fee would also go up $2 and that would go into effect this fall.

The athletics department has several ongoing construction projects on campus, including a student activities center and a new expansion to the Centennial Bank Stadium.

The agenda said the increases are needed to “provide quality education and economic development activities.”

The meeting will start at 1 p.m.
