Trustees Did Not Increase Undergraduate Tuition

The Jacksonville State University Board of Trustees did not increase undergraduate tuition for the 2005 academic year during their meeting Monday.

The board did decide that, beginning with the 2006-2007 academic year, all undergraduate hours will be billed at the approved hourly rate in effect at that time. At present, there is a "window" of 12 to 16 credit hours, in which students pay $2,020 per regular semester. Starting in 2006, students will pay for each credit hour.

Trustees raised graduate tuition $23 per credit hour, which means graduate students will pay a total of $225 per credit hour beginning this fall. Out-of-state graduate students will pay two times the in-state rate, or $450 per credit hour.

The board also adopted a resolution that stipulates that distance learning courses will be charged at the rate of $169 per credit hour for undergraduates and $225 per credit hour for graduate students.

The resolution is contingent upon the governor's fiscal year 2005 budget recommendation for JSU.
