ASU Tuition, Fees Increase Sought

The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees meets this morning at 10:00am on the Arkansas State University-Newport campus.

The agenda and proposed resolutions include budgets, tuition and fees for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Arkansas State University in Jonesboro is requesting a 3.4 percent increase in combined annual tuition and fees. The two-year institution requests are ASU-Beebe, 1.7 percent; ASU-Mountain Home, 1.7 percent; ASU-Newport, 2.6 percent; and ASU Mid-South, 2.3 percent. The ASU System operating budget proposal for all campuses seeks a cumulative 1 percent increase compared with last year.

This spring, nearly every public university in the state has elected to raise both tuition and fees, along with nearly every community college.

The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville is the only school that did not raise either tuition or fees. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock did not to raise tuition.
