UCA pushes for 4 percent tuition increase

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY, Ark. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The University of Central Arkansas is proposing a 4 percent increase for tuition and mandatory fees next school year.

School officials made the proposal Tuesday. The university's board of trustees will vote on the proposal during a meeting Friday in Conway.

Under the proposal, the cost of tuition and mandatory fees for an undergraduate student taking 30 credit hours over two semesters will rise from $7,595 to $7,889, for the 2014-2015 school year. That's a 3.86 percent increase.

UCA President Tom Courtway says the tuition increase is to cover cost-of-living increases for faculty and staff.

UCA Student Government Association vice president of operations Bryce Crabb says he and fellow student leaders believe the increase is necessary and support it.
