ASU to increase tuition and room rates

Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Alabama State University Board of Trustees passed a resolution to increase tuition beginning Fall 2010 .

The board says that the increase is necessary to meet the increasing costs and demands of academic and administrative functions and to mitigate the impact of proration to the University's state appropriation.

The tuition for all in-state undergraduate students will increase by $348 per semester. This increase represents a 12.39% increase over the 2009-2010 tuition rate. 

Tuition rates for graduate students and non-state undergraduate and graduate students will be adjusted according to the current formula.

In addition to the tuition increase, the ASU Board of Trustees approved a room rate increase of $40 per resident student/per semester for all residence halls on the campus effective the Fall 2010 Semester.

The board stated it needed to increase the room rate to compensate for increased costs of its residential facilities.
