Tuition Increase

Trustees at the University of Alabama have approved a 12 percent tuition increase for students at the Tuscaloosa campus.

At the University's other campuses in Birmingham and Huntsville, students will pay nine to 10 percent more. The committee cited a need for more money to provide faculty and staff pay raises.

On the 20,000 student Tuscaloosa campus, undergraduates from Alabama will pay $4,630 in tuition and required fees for 30 hours of class credit next year. That’s $496 more than 2003's $4,134.

They’re not the only school raising prices, last week, Auburn trustees approved a nine percent increase, and two weeks ago, University of South Alabama trustees approved a 13 percent increase.

University of Alabama Tuition Increase 2003 - $4,134 and in 2004 - $4,630
