RUSSELLVILLE – Arkansas Tech University tuition and mandatory fees will increase about 1.5% in the 2022-2023 academic year, the board of trustees decided Thursday.
The average in-state resident undergraduate student taking a total of 30 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters would pay an annual rate of $ 9,681.90 in tuition and mandatory fees for 2022-2023 under the newly approved rates. In 2021-2022, the annual rate was $ 9,538.50.
The actual amount that students will pay depends, in part, on their field of study. The rate does not include books, supplies and living expenses.
Several universities in Arkansas have already raised rates for the next academic year:
• Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, where a typical in-state resident will pay $ 9,580 in annual tuition and mandatory fees for 30 hours during the 2022-23 academic year, reflecting a 2.9% increase. The board of trustees with June 9.
