The University of Arkansas wants to raise in-state tuition at the Fayetteville campus by eight percent -- the largest single-year increase in seven years. Instead of charging $127 for every credit-hour of classes, university officials want trustees to raise it to more than $137 per hour. That would force undergraduates from Arkansas to pay at least five percent more than they did last fall. The typical undergraduate in Fayetteville takes 15 credit-hours, and would have to pay $2,057, about 150 more than last year. A national report says Arkansas is not alone in raising public collegiate tuition rates. Sixteen states reported raising tuition by more than ten percent in 2002 and 2003. Trustees will consider the increases at their meeting in Little Rock next Friday.
