The University of Arkansas System has proposed tuition increases.

Tuition and mandatory fees would be $8,209, a 5 percent increase, for the average undergraduate student taking 30 credit hours during the 2014-15 academic year at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

University of Arkansas at Little Rock undergraduates carrying 30 credit hours would be charged $7,959, a 4.7 percent increase. The largest percentage increase would be at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, where an undergraduate taking 30 credit hours would pay $5,962, a 6 percent increase.

University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff students face the smallest percentage increase: 3.5 percent. Their undergraduate rate would be $5,956 if they take 30 credit hours. University of Arkansas at Monticello students would pay $6,082, a 5 percent increase.

The University of Arkansas board of trustees meets Wednesday and Thursday in Monticello. If the board approves the new rates and university budgets, faculty at each campus would receive a minimum 2 percent merit raise.

Probably due to offering same-sex insurance benefits.

Tuition was $315 for 18 hours in my first semester, and believe me, it isn't worth a penny more than that. Scholarships prevented me from paying anything, and that's what it takes to get through school today. If you can't get a scholarship, go to a technical school and learn to be a welder, electrician, pipe fitter, heating and air conditioning technician, etc. You'll probably make more than most college grads anyway.

Why does it cost $2,000 more to go to UALR over UAPB ..... aren't they both part of the University of Arkansas?
