The University of Arizona has proposed no increase in base tuition and fees for all new resident and nonresident undergraduate students. These tuition rates will be guaranteed for four years under the university's Guaranteed Tuition Plan. All continuing students will see no increase.

The university also proposes no increase in tuition and fees for incoming resident and nonresident graduate students. Mandatory fees for all incoming graduate students will be frozen under the Guaranteed Tuition Plan.

"We know our incoming students’ and their families’ finances have been severely impacted by the pandemic, and we’re proposing no increases for incoming undergraduate and graduate students this year. We want them to know they come first," said University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins.

College of Medicine tuition for first-year resident students at the Phoenix and Tucson campuses would increase by 3%. There will be no increase in tuition for continuing medical students or for incoming nonresident medical students.

Tuition for the inaugural class of the new College of Veterinary Medicine will be $45,000 for residents and $69,999 for nonresidents. The college is the first and only public veterinary medicine school in Arizona.

The UArizona tuition proposal process includes undergraduate and graduate student government  leaders Sydney Hess and Marie Teemant; Liesl Folks, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost; and Lisa Rulney, senior vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer.

The Arizona Board of Regents will announce dates and times for a public hearing on tuition proposals and the board meeting, both of which will be livestreamed.
