Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia has announced that it will increase tuition this fall, but it will keep mandatory fees flat.
An SAU undergraduate in-state resident taking 15 credit hours per semester will pay $4,655 in tuition and mandatory fees for the fall semester, or a total of $9,310 for 30 hours for two semesters — fall and spring — in tuition and mandatory fees, according to Donna Allen, vice president for student affairs at the university.
Tuition for an undergraduate student will be $225 per student semester credit hour, an increase of 3.67%, according to SAU officials.
SAU-Tech, the university's two-year community college in Camden, will leave tuition unchanged this fall from fall 2020 totals. However, a technology fee will increase by $5 per student semester credit hour, SAU officials said.
