TUCSON, Ariz. — The Arizona Board of Regents approved a proposed increase in tuition and fees for the 2019-20 school year Thursday.

The tuition hike affects all of Arizona's public universities, and reflects a multi-year commitment to enhance tuition predictability and keep tuition increases low, ABOR said in a press release .

Here's what the tuition hike means for each school according to ABOR:

Arizona State University

  • Arizona resident undergraduate students at Arizona State University will have an average 2.8 percent increase under a simplified structure that eliminates class fees and implements a four-tiered college fee.

Northern Arizona University

  • Most continuing Arizona resident undergraduate students on the tuition Pledge guarantee program at Northern Arizona University will see zero increase with a 2.9 percent increase in tuition and mandatory fees for new undergraduate resident students.

University of Arizona

  • Students enrolled in the University of Arizona Tuition Guarantee program will see no increase with a 1.8 percent increase in tuition and mandatory fees for new undergraduate resident students.

“Our board is pleased that our universities continue to maintain cost predictability for students through tuition guarantees and promises,” said ABOR Chair Ron Shoopman. “We’re committed to providing quality education to all qualified Arizona students to increase educational attainment in Arizona.”
