Tuition, Fees, and Surcharges

Setting Tuition and Fees

The Arizona Board of Regents annually sets the tuition and fees (both mandatory and for special programs) for Arizona's public universities, including ASU.  A.R.S. 15-1626 authorizes the board to adopt rules to govern its tuition and fee setting process.  The rules include provisions for public discosure by each university of any proposed increases in tuition and fees at least ten days prior to a public hearing held at each university as an opportunity for students and members of the public to comment upon any proposed increase in tuition and fees.  The Board is scheduled to set the 2010-11 academic year tuition, mandatory fees, and all other fees requiring Board action at its March 11-12, 2010 meeting. 

The Arizona Board of Regents usually sets ASU's tuition and fee rates each fall for the following academic year.  Arizona State University is a publicly-supported institution and receives a portion of its budget from the state government.  Tuition and fees are subject to legislative and gubernatorial action that may affect the nature and level of legislative funding.  Substantial changes in levels of state support and other factors such as inflation and increased costs may require increases in tuition and fees. All amounts shown in the Tuition and Fees Schedules or in other University publications or web pages represent tuition and fees as currently approved.  However, Arizona State University reserves the right to increase or modify tuition and fees without prior notice, upon approval by the Arizona Board of Regents or as otherwise consistent with Board policy and to make such modifications applicable to students enrolled at ASU at that time as well as to incoming students.  In addition, all tuition amounts and fees are subject to change at any time for correction of errors.  Finally, please note that fee amounts billed for any period may be adjusted at a future date.
