The Arizona Board of Regents approved Thursday tuition increases and set fee rates for the 2016-17 academic year at each of the state's three public universities: Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University.

The increases in tuition vary by campus and also differ based on students' residency and if they are enrolled in graduate or undergraduate classes.

Students at Arizona State will see the state's highest and lowest tuition increases, with resident graduate students paying 1.3 percent more and resident undergraduates 1.5 percent more. Nonresidents, both undergraduate and graduate, at ASU will each see 4 percent tuition hikes for classes beginning in the fall.

The increases do not apply to students currently enrolled at tuition guarantee programs at the three campuses, resulting in no tuition increase for 96 percent of continuing undergrads at NAU and more than three-fourths of students enrolled in such a program at the University of Arizona, according to a release from the regents.

Resident hall rates and meal plans also are going up in fiscal 2017, with the increases varying by the university.

The board also asked the state legislature to prioritize $24 million in additional funding beyond the $8 million proposed for the 2017 fiscal year in Governor Doug Ducey's budget.
