GOP proposal would increase in-state tuition at ASU, UA, NAU

Tuition for in-state university students would skyrocket by nearly 50% under a proposal being pushed by one of the leading Republicans on the Education Committee in the Arizona House of Representatives.

Rep. John Fillmore, a Republican from Apache Junction and the vice-chairman of the Education Committee, introduced House Bill 2020 earlier this month. The measure would require the Arizona Board of Regents to calculate in-state tuition “based on the actual cost of educating the student, including maintenance and operations costs and capital costs.”

According to ABOR, the average cost to educate a student at the state’s public universities is $17,075 – about 45% more than the average in-state tuition price of $11,777.

“While the board has not met to take position on bills, it should be made very clear that Rep. Fillmore’s proposed legislation would substantially increase the student cost of public higher education in Arizona, counter to the hard work of the Arizona Board of Regents and universities to keep higher education within reach for Arizona students and families,” said ABOR spokeswoman Julie Newberg.
