UA Trustees Approve 3% Tuition Hike & Focus on "Managing" Future Growth
This seems like the first step for UA to release the cutoff scores for the automatic scholarships which will be applicable in the next admissions cycle. Tuition increases to $5,085 per semester for in-state students, and to $12,975 per semester for out of state students.
For those OOS kids who are eligible for the Presidential, the four-year value of that scholarship will be $103,800, so Bama has officially crossed the six-digit number on that award. Hopefully, the UA scholarship page will be updated shortly. I know there are a number of parents like myself of high school rising seniors who are crossing their fingers that the cutoff test scores for the Presidential don't change.
Of related interest, there is an interesting story about how after emphasizing growing the undergraduate student body, Bama wants to manage future growth particularly in the areas of research dollars and its graduate programs. Other than somehow increasing the undergraduate graduation rate, (which trails its SEC peers like Florida, Georgia and A&M), improving the depth of the graduate programs would improve the institution's academic rankings and reputation.
