TUCSON, AZ — Some Arizona students will be paying more to go to college this fall.

Citing continued cuts in state funding for universities and a desire to keep tuition predictable, the Arizona Board of Regents unanimously approved increases at each of the state's three universities on Thursday.

Arizona State University resident undergraduate students will see an average 2.8 percent increase in tuition and fees.

The school is also changing the structure of student fees. Depending on which department students are enrolled, fees will range from $0 to $1,050.

Resident undergraduate students at Northern Arizona University not enrolled in the school's tuition guarantee program, will see an increase of 2.9 percent in tuition and mandatory fees.

University of Arizona students not enrolled in its guarantee program will have a 1.8 percent rise in tuition and fees.

In its meeting in Tucson, ABOR also approved a $20,000 bonus for ASU President Michael Crow.

The money was awarded after Crow exceeded goal for research expenditures for fiscal years 2015 through 2018.
