by Michelle Saport  |   

The Board of Regents-anticipating a state budget shortfall of $50 million next year-announced an $8 to $11 per credit tuition increase across all University of Alaska campuses. This goes into effect fall semester. For a full-time, in-state student taking 15 credits, this will result in a $120 increase per semester.
