9 9 Historical Tuition Increases – Full-Time Undergraduate Resident Students In 2003, the Legislature initially proposed a $46/SCH tuition increase or $690 for 15 SCH. Ultimately, the Legislature passed deregulated tuition instead. Of the $779 increase in fall 2004, $690 would have come from a “catch up” by the Legislature.

13 13 Graduate Flat Rate Tuition Revenue neutral: No matter how many hours a student takes, their tuition bill will not be significantly higher or lower under this plan than it would be in current system Not intended to change behavior: Undergraduate flat rate system provides an incentive for taking more credit hours – Graduate flat rate does not Greater transparency: Student will know ahead of time how much total bill will be, and so will the university More fair for dual degrees: Eliminates redundant fees
